Disabled parking permits

Victoria is transitioning to the new Accessible Parking Permit (APP) Scheme — a simpler, quicker and fairer disability parking permit process.

We are now processing parking permit applications online as part of our adoption of the new state-wide Accessible Parking Permit (APP) Scheme. If you require a new permit, or need to renew or replace a permit,  you will need to apply with the new online application process.

All existing Glen Eira City Council issued permits will remain valid until they expire.

Three different parking permits are issued under the APP Scheme:

  • An Australian Disability Parking (ADP) Permit — formerly the Category 1 Blue disabled permit
  • A Double Time (DT) Permit — formerly the Category 2 Green Permit
  • An ADP Organisational Permit — formerly Blue organisation permit

Long term permits are now 5 years. Short term permits are now 6, 12 or 24 months. All current permit holders must undertake a medical assessment when they renew into the APP Scheme. Permit holders can now be assessed as having a permanent medical condition or disability and will no longer require medical assessments to renew permits.
