Whether you apply for a temporary or permanent handicapped parking permit in the state of Georgia depends on the nature of your disability. Your physician must complete a portion of the application certifying your disability and stating whether it is temporary or permanent. Your doctor will need to certify any of the following conditions of your disability, based on criteria set forth by Georgia law:
 

  • Hearing impaired
  • Cannot walk 200 feet without stopping to rest
  • Cannot walk without assistance or use of wheelchair
  • Lung disease or severe breathing difficulty
  • Uses portable oxygen
  • Has severe cardiac condition
  • Is blind
  • Has limited walking ability due to arthritic, neurological, or orthopedic condition or complications due to pregnancy

The state of Georgia recognizes and honors all disabled parking permits, placards, and plates from other states, so disabled visitors are welcome to park in handicap spaces statewide. Disabled permits, placards, and plates issued in Georgia are also valid in all 50 states.
