If you have a mobility parking permit, there are some responsibilities and rules you need to follow.
Displaying your permit
Your permit must be clearly displayed on the inside of the vehicle windscreen, or on the dashboard while you are parked.
If you do not have your card with you, or it is not clearly visible in the windscreen, you cannot use a mobility parking space, or make use of the concessions. You could be liable for a fine of $150.
Ensuring your permit is valid
If you have a long-term permit you will need to ensure it is renewed every 5 years. If you are using an out-of-date permit (even if you didn't realise it had expired), you will be liable for a $150 parking fine. We will send you a reminder if we have your current address, but it is your responsibility to ensure you renew your permit.
Your permit can only be used by you
Mobility parking permits are issued to a person, not a vehicle. The permit should only be used if the permit holder needs to get in or out of a vehicle:
- If the permit holder is going to stay in the car, the vehicle must be parked in a standard parking space
- A permit cannot be loaned to anyone, even if the person is running an errand for the permit holder.
Permits can be cancelled if they are misused.
