Obtaining a Disability or Temporary Disability Parking Placard

Students and employees wishing to use disability parking must apply for those privileges through a state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The Utah DMV can issue disability parking placards even if the vehicle is registered in another state. If you need a disability parking placard for longterm or temporary use, you may request one by following these instructions:

  1. Go to
  2. Download or print Form TC-842 found in the "Obtaining Plates or Placards" section on the webpage
  3. After a licensed physician (not a psychologist or counselor) completes the TC-842 form, you can apply for the plate or placard in person at the DMV or by mail

BYU Disability Parking Guidelines

Any person who has a disability and who properly displays a valid disability placard (placard must be hung from mirror) or disability license plate issued by a state may park in a designated disability stall as long as it is not reserved for a specific disability placard number.

Placards are valid only when the person to whom the placard is issued is either in the vehicle or being picked-up or dropped off. Placards misused in this manner will be seized and returned to the issuing state and a citation may be issued.

A valid state placard or license plate for persons with a disability does not authorize parking in areas designated for emergency use (red curbs), outside marked parking stalls, nor in specially designated stalls, such as Service, Official, Police Service, X stalls, Departmental stalls, etc.

Disability placards or plates are valid in "A", "C", "G", or "Y" lots and in time zones (only those displaying clock symbols on the parking sign) for extended periods of time when designated disability slots are unavailable, unless otherwise restricted. This includes non-ADA stalls in these lots.

Examples of stalls that are "otherwise restricted" include but are not limited to:

X (Special University Guest Parking)
O (Dean Parking)
Service Vehicle Stalls
Stalls reserved for a specific permit number
Sports Official stalls
Departmental stalls
Police stalls
