PARKING PERMIT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES PROGRAM

If you have mobility limitations and wish to apply for a parking permit, you must obtain a parking permit application form from the SPARC BC website or request one be mailed to you. Complete the form in its entirety, and have your physician complete Section 2 of the form. Both you and your doctor must sign the application. A carefully completed application accompanied by the processing fee can be processed within 2 to 3 weeks. Acceptable forms of payment are cheque, money order, Visa, MasterCard or Interac, if applying in person. Sorry, we do not accept cash.

PARKING WITH YOUR PERMIT

Permits must be displayed in the vehicle by hanging them from the rear view mirror. The registration number and expiry date must face away from the driver, so that they are easily visible when looking through the windshield from outside the vehicle. If you are unable to reach the rear view mirror, you may also display the permit on the vehicle dashboard, with the registration number and expiry date facing up. Parking permits must only be displayed when the vehicle is parked.
