    Disability License Plates

    To apply for or to renew a Montana physical disability license plate, you must have a certified physician, chiropractor, or advanced-care nurse fill out the designated section of the Disability Permit/License Plate Application. You then must complete your portion of the application and send it, along with a registration fee, to your county treasurer's office.

    If you are renewing, you do not have to provide a recertification of your permanent disability.

    Disability Parking Permits

    These permits are open to people with permanent and temporary disabilities. Applications can be found at any county treasurer's office or online and must be completed by you and a licensed physician, chiropractor, or advanced-care nurse.

    Temporary permits are valid for 6 months (and can be extended an additional 24 months if your disability persists), while permanent permits are valid for 3 years. Permanent permits may be renewed.

    Once all the information is completed, send or deliver this application to the Motor Vehicle Division :

    • Motor Vehicle Division
    • P.O. Box 201430
    • Helena MT 59620-1430

    After your information is processed, the bureau will mail you a parking permit placard for your vehicle.

    Traveling With a Placard

    Montana's disability placards are honored in all 50 states and in most countries. If you plan on traveling for an extended period of time and you have a temporary placard, keep in mind that the initial placard can only be issued for six months. However, if your disability persists, you can reapply for another placard. Depending on your condition, the placard can be extended. To reapply, you must submit a completed Disability Permit/License Plate Application.
