You can request a Disabled Person Placard from the California Department of Motor Vehicles to use when transporting your grandchild by car, if the child has impaired mobility and is at risk when walking to or from public parking areas. This is the procedure for filing an application:
- Complete and sign an Application for Disabled Person Placard or Plates (REG 195).
- Have a licensed physician, surgeon, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, or a certified midwife sign the Doctor’s Certification of Disability portion of the application.
- Mail the original application to the address on the form. You will receive your parking placard approximately two weeks after you submit the completed form
