Am I eligible for a permit?

To qualify for a Mobility Parking Scheme permit you must be a resident of NSW and have a disability as defined by legislation.

This means someone who:

  • Is unable to walk due to the permanent or temporary loss or use of one or both legs
  • Is unable to walk because of other permanent medical or physical condition
  • Is detrimentally affected as a result of walking 100 metres
  • Needs to use crutches, a walking frame, callipers, scooter, wheelchair or other similar mobility aid.

Permits are also issued to people who are permanently blind, as defined by:

  1. Visual acuity on the Snellen Scale after correction by suitable lenses must be less than 6/60 in both eyes, or
  2. Constriction to within 10 degrees of fixation in the better eye irrespective of corrected visual acuity, or
  3. A combination of visual defects in the same degree of visual impairment as that occurring in points 1 or 2.
