Parking permit for severely disabled extension

Severely disabled people can renew a parking permit.

Parking facilities may be granted to severely disabled people with exceptional walking disabilities, bilateral Amelie or Phocomelia or with comparable functional limitations, as well as to blind people in the form of an EU parking card ("blue parking card").

Severely disabled persons who are equivalent to the above-called group of persons (special groups of severely disabled persons) can be granted parking facilities limited to the Federal territory ("orange parking card").

The parking permit offers various special parking rights, e.B. free parking in parking space-managed areas.

The parking permit is personal and may only be used in the presence of the authorized person(s), regardless of the vehicle used.





  • Application (to be requested from the competent authority)
  • Copy of severely disabled person's ID card or copy of the pension office
  • Copy of identity card
  • current photo (only for EU parking card)
  • If applicable, equality certificate from the pension office
  • if applicable, power of attorney or supervisor card

Additional documentation may be required.

More detailed information can be found on the website of your competent road traffic authority.
