You must be a resident of Yonkers to receive a Disabled Parking Permit from the Yonkers PVB.

NOTE: If you would like license plates for the disabled, you must apply at the Department of Motor Vehicles OR if you would like a disabled parking space in front of your home, you must apply through the City's Department of Engineering.

  • As per the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles, when applying for a Parking Permit for the Disabled, you MUST submit a copy of your driver’s license or non-driver’s id. If you do not have one, you must submit a letter stating you do not have one along with your application. The last 3 digits of your ID number will be listed on your permit. This is to prevent misuse of the permit and to assist officers in identifying the permit holder.
  • All applications MUST have a diagnosis written by your Doctor and their signature. All incomplete applications will be returned.
  • Once received and verified, your permit will be mailed. NO permits will be processed on the same day at the PVB Office.
  • All applications are good for 5 (five) years at which time a NEW application must be completed by your Doctor.
  • Disabled permits take 5 to 7 days to process. Please apply for renewal at least 2 weeks prior to the expiration date.
  • Having a disabled permit allows the mobility disabled to park in spaces designated for disability parking only. A permit may only be used when the disabled person is being transported. Your tag MUST be displayed and all other parking regulations for the general public must be adhered to. 
  • In the City of Yonkers disabled permit holders must still place money in all parking meters. Only those with a separate NYS Meter Waiver Permit displayed do not have to place money in the meters. 

  • Having a Disabilty permit does NOT allow you to stop, stand or park in a disabled parking access aisle (hatch marked or diagonal lines located next to spaces reserved for the disabled for wheelchair access) or in fire lanes AT ANY TIME.
