Florida disabled parking permits expire every 4 years before a permit holder’s birthday and must be renewed if holders want to keep their benefits.
If you are going through the hassle of your Florida handicap placard expiring, the process is the same as an initial application. The difference is that the process will be easier as you know the steps better. In most cases, you can submit the same application as your original but need a new health provider’s signature. This signature must be signed within 12 months. Some states will not allow the same application to be given again; Florida will allow for an original application and updated provider signature. This provides less hassle for the applicant.
It is best to track what needs to be renewed and when. Ideally, this is done by having a digital or written calendar to remind you a few months before the expiration to renew. This way, you are reminded to get your application ready and schedule an appointment or use handicappedparking.com to skip the hassle, process, and application. We can have everything drafted up and organized for repeat customers, so you don’t have to worry. We recommend for your records that you keep a copy of your application, especially as the state allows for the reuse of this application.
