Type of Permits

In Wyoming, there are several provisions for handicapped parking spaces, plates and placards. You can qualify for:

  • A permanent disability placard
  • A permanent disability plate
  • A temporary disability placard
  • A disabled veteran plate

In order to qualify, you have to have a vehicle that is registered in your name.

Visitors

If you are visiting Wyoming, then the state will recognize any disability plates or placards from another state. You do not have to apply for a permit or placard in Wyoming. On the other hand, if you are leaving the State of Wyoming to travel elsewhere, then generally speaking, other states will honor the provisions that you are entitled to in the State of Wyoming.

  • You can get a your disability placard replaced at no cost.
  • License plates can be purchased at the standard rate.

Renewal

Temporary placards are good for six months, and can be renewed once by re-applying. Permanent placards are good for a year, and before it expires, you will be notified by mail. Then all you have to do is fill out and return your renewal notice.
