As you may have noticed, there are two different handicap permits you can receive.
Blue indicates a permanent placard. These are granted to individuals believed to have a disabling condition that lasts a lifetime. More commonly, those who require a wheelchair, are an amputee, require oxygen, are legally blind, or have an arthritic/neurological disorder.
This indicates a temporary condition. People who qualify for temporary permits have them for up to 12 months, depending on the state; more commonly, this can be up to 6 months. The benefits of a temporary permit are the same as a permanent one, but the length varies. Handicappedparking.com will, at times, approve a temporary permit instead of a permanent one to still allow the individual the ability to access these benefits if their condition is treatable or limited. Either way, you can easily apply in Texas and Florida and see which handicap you qualify for.
