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.

Parking for the disabled

Please note: you can only apply for a parking space for the disabled by registration number if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

Applying for a parking place for disabled costs € 98.01. You also pay for the construction of the parking place.

A maximum of 8 weeks (depending on the investigation into the traffic situation). The municipality may extend this period once by 6 weeks. The parking lot will then be ready within 2 weeks.

Before a decision is made, the municipality will first investigate the situation in your area. For example, how many free parking spaces there are. The municipality cannot carry out the investigation in July and August because it is much quieter in the streets during these holiday months. You then have to wait longer for the decision.
