I Have Not Received My Disabled Person Parking Placard
My permanent handicap parking placard expires June 30, 2017. I was told that it will renew automatically and I do not need to do anything. I have not received it yet. (Today is 6/28/17). Please help. Thanks.
You may need to order a replacement placard. Here's how.You're correct, permanent disabled person parking placards are automatically renewed and mailed by the DMV to the address on record. Mail does get lost. Handicap placards are valuable, they get stolen too. We recommend contacting the DMV at (800) 777-0133 to inquire on whether or not your renewed placard was mailed out and if so, when. Should your new placard have been lost in the mail or perhaps stolen, you'll need to complete a Application for Replacement Plates, Stickers, Documents (REG 156) (PDF) and mail it to the DMV at:
PO Box 942869
Sacramento, CA 94269-0001
You will receive your parking placard replacement in approximately four weeks after you submit the completed form.
