Mirror-hung placards or license plates for the permanently disabled are available when the disability is certified by a licensed physician. Mirror-hung placards initially cost $26.50 and are valid for two years. They are renewable every two years for a fee of $3.00. The placard may be used in any vehicle in which the disabled person is a passenger. A temporary placard is valid for a period of six months and is available upon physician certification. Cost of the temporary placard is $10.00 and can only be renewed one time. (Requires new certification). Click on the link below for a copy of the certification form.
When a plate is preferred the vehicle owner should bring the completed certification to the County Clerk’s office. If this plate is replacing a plate that is still valid the plate must be returned when applying for the disabled tag.
Free plates are authorized only when a physician certifies the applicant is 100% confined to a wheelchair. When the plate is issued by the County Clerk’s office for the first time the applicant may request a free mirror-hung placard that is valid for two years.
