Types of Disability Placard

Disability Placards are issued to disabled individuals and can be used in any vehicle. Depending on the severity of your disability, you can apply for one of the two types of placards listed below. Your physician can help you determine which is more appropriate:


Temporary

If your doctor selects the temporary placard option, they’ll also include the expiration date (a maximum of 6 months from the date your application is processed).

5 Year

Valid for 5 years from the processing date.


Note

We no longer offer lifetime permanent disability placards.

 

If you wish to obtain a disability license plate, you must first have a 5-year disability placard. A disability license plate is required in some cities within Oklahoma and must be renewed every year. To apply for a disability license plate, click here.
