Applying for a personalised disabled parking space

Do you have a European Union (EU) parking card for people with disabilities? Do you want to park close to your home or workplace? If so, you can apply to the municipality for a personalised parking space. Only the vehicle with the registered vehicle registration number may park in that space.

The municipality stipulates a number of conditions for issuing a personalised disabled parking space:

  • you have an EU parking card for people with disabilities that is valid for at least 6 months;
  • you do not have a permanent parking space on the premises of your home;
  • you are the driver of a car, a motorised tricycle/quadricycle or a vehicle for persons with disabilities;
  • you cannot walk more than 100 metres on your own, even with aids, such as crutches or a walker;
  • you must be examined by a medical examiner. Your municipality will refer you to a medical examiner. Is your disability chronic? Is your municipality already aware of it? If so, a medical examination is not required;
  • you are registered in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen – BRP) at the address for which you are requesting a personalised disabled parking space.

There are 2 types of personalised disabled parking spaces:

Personalised disabled parking space without time restriction

A personalised disabled parking space is a reserved parking space, for example at your home. A white road sign with a registration number is placed below the blue road sign with the letter P and a wheelchair symbol. Only the vehicle that has that registration number is allowed to park there.

Personalised disabled parking space with time restriction

A time-restricted personalised disabled parking space is a reserved parking space where you come at set times, for example your workplace. There is a second white sign under the sign displaying the registration number on the blue road sign with the letter P and a wheelchair symbol. This second white sign displays days and times. Only you may park in that space during those days and times. Anyone may park there outside of those days and times.

Here is some information from your municipality.

Applying for a personalised disabled parking space

If you have a disability, you can apply for a parking space for the disabled. This is a parking space close to your home.

The parking space for the disabled is only for your own car. You can apply for a parking space for the disabled inside or outside a paid parking zone.

You can apply for a parking space for the disabled if:

  • you own a car, moped or disabled vehicle;
  • you hold a European disabled driver's parking card;
  • you have a walking disability that is permanent;
  • you do not have your own parking space, such as a driveway, carport or garage.

Please contact the municipality. From outside the Netherlands you can call +31 570 69 39 11. From the Netherlands the number is 14 0570.

A parking space for the disabled costs a one-off fee of € 281,75 (rate 2024). You pay this amount after being granted a parking space.

Following your application, an employee of Deventer municipality will look at the location you have indicated. The employee will investigate whether it is technically possible to create a parking space for the disabled.
