Disabled Parking Permit

Accessible Parking Permit Scheme 

Victoria is transitioning to the new Accessible Parking Permit (APP) Scheme and online administration system.

Mornington Peninsula Shire is currently transitioning to the new APP Scheme. Our residents and organisations who require a new permit, or need to renew or replace a permit, will need to apply with the new application process.

The new APP Scheme will streamline the application process, making it easier, simpler and consistent across the state. The new permit also will better align with the COAG 2010 Australian Disability Parking Permit Scheme (ADPS).

Improvements to the Scheme include:

  • introduction of temporary permits for 6, 12 or 24 months,
  • increased permit length, from 3 years to 5 years for individuals
  • introduction of a permanent disability classification, so reassessments are not required for some people’s future permit renewals,
  • a new single and secure state-wide permit design that will reduce the misuse of permits,
  • the inclusion of occupational therapists as assessors, in addition to GPs, and
  • Double Time (green permits) and permits for organisations will continue under the new scheme.
