At some locations, when you apply for or renew a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit, your permit will be posted to you.
When you first apply for a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit, you will need to go to a service centre in person so that you can have your photo taken for the permit.
If you're under 16, or if you qualify for a photo exemption, you can send someone else to the service centre to apply for the permit for you.
If you're applying for a permit for someone else, you'll need to provide your own proof of identity as well as the proof of identity of the person applying for the permit.
You don't have to have your photo taken if you're under 16. You can apply for a photo exemption so that you don't have to have your photo taken if you have:
- motor disability so severe that it stops you from attending a service centre, or
- a facial disfigurement.
If you have either of these, when you send in your completed Mobility Parking Scheme Application form, include:
- a letter asking that you don't have your photo taken, and
- a supporting letter from your doctor.
If you're approved not to have your photo taken, you'll be sent a Letter of Exemption, which you or your representative will need to bring to the service centre.
Fitness to drive
If you hold a NSW Driver's or Rider's Licence when you apply for a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit, your medical fitness to drive will be tested and you'll need to provide a medical report to Roads and Maritime Services.
If you don't want to provide a medical report to support your medical fitness to drive, you can either withdraw your application for a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit, or you can surrender your NSW Driver's or Rider's Licence.
