Temporary & Permanent Handicapped Parking Permits

Temporary Handicapped Parking Permits

The Lieutenant may issue a temporary handicapped parking permit to a Seaside Park resident. The temporary permit is valid for 6 months. The temporary handicapped permit is intended for people with temporary physical conditions. You can get the application form for a temporary handicapped permit through the Seaside Park Police Department or the NJ Motor Vehicle Services. Your doctor may also have an application. The application requires that your doctor signs the application, and a $4.00 check payable to the NJ Motor Vehicle Services be included.

The application and fee is submitted to the Seaside Park Police Department, and you pick up your temporary permit from the Police Department.

The handicapped person may request an extension after the first six months if they have not yet recovered from their handicapped condition.

Permanent Handicapped Parking Permits and License Plates

The NJ Motor Vehicle Services issues permanent handicapped parking permits. Applications for permanent permits may be picked up at the nearest NJ Motor Vehicle Services Office. You send the application and payment directly to NJ Motor Vehicle Services by the applicant.

If you wish for a form to be mailed to you, you can call the Motor Vehicles to request it. The phone number is 1(888)486-3339, x5061.
You may request either a placard, a special license plate, or BOTH. (There is no charge for this.) You’ll need your doctor’s permission, and the process takes between 4-6 weeks.
