Getting a permit

A NSW Mobility Parking Scheme permit lets you park in disability parking places. You can also access certain parking concessions.

The NSW permit entitles you to an Australian Disability Parking Permit at no extra cost. See Applying for a permit for how to apply.

You may be eligible for a free NSW permit. See Am I eligible for a concession?

Costs of permits, renewals, replacements

It's free for eligible concession card holders to apply for or renew an Individual or Temporary permit. There's a small fee for replacing a permit.

For others, there is a cost for applying for, and renewing a permit. This includes individual, temporary and organisation permits. See fees.
