Disability Placards

Effective January 1, 2010, SCDMV began issuing disability placards that contain a photo of the individual to whom the placard was issued, along with certificates verifying their eligibility. You will have to recertify your disability with your physician before you can obtain a photo-bearing placard. Only one photo-bearing placard will be issued per customer and the cost is $1.00.

 

Vehicles displaying a disability license plate or disability placard may park in designated spaces for persons with disabilities, but only if that vehicle is driven by or is transporting the individual with the disability whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate.

 

Vehicles displaying a disability license plate or disability placard are exempt from the payment of municipal parking meter fees (SC Code of Laws 56-3-1965).

 

Individuals applying for a placard must complete Form RG-007A, Disabled Placard and License Plate Application.  Businesses applying for a placard must complete Form RG-007B, Organization Disabled Placard and License Plate Application.

Disability Plates

Vehicle owners with disability license plates must also carry registration certificates that list the names of all eligible persons with a disability in their household that operate or may be transported in the vehicle.  When customers renew their disability license plate, they will receive a license plate and registration certificate.

 

Businesses are not required to certify with a physician.  Businesses with disability license plates must also carry registration certificates.  Business certificates will not list names of persons with disabilities.  The certificate will state that the vehicle is entitled to park in designated parking spaces.

 

Vehicles displaying a disability license plate or placard may only park in designated spaces if that vehicle is driven by or is transporting the individual whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate.
