Renew or replace a disability parking permit
Is your NSW disability parking permit about to expire? Is it lost, damaged or stolen? Here's how to renew or replace it.
Who can renew or replace a permit?
You can renew or replace your NSW Mobility Parking Scheme permit if you're an eligible person with a disability or medical condition that severely affects your ability to walk.
Someone else can renew your permit for you if you’re already recorded in our system and have a photo exemption. The person renewing the permit will need to provide their proof of identity as well as yours when applying.
How to renew
Make sure you renew your NSW mobility parking permit before your old one expires.
If your permit is about to expire, we'll send you a renewal notice about 6 weeks before the expiry date.
The renewal notice will advise if you need to book an appointment with a medical doctor or specialist before you renew your permit. This is so they can confirm you're still eligible on your application.
If you have an eligible permanent disability we record this on our system when you first apply for a permit. This means you may not need to confirm your eligibility to renew your permit.
See permit costs to see if you're eligible for a free or discounted permit.
