​Under North Carolina law, the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles issues disability placards and license plates for vehicle owners who need parking assistance and are certified as:
  • Being unable to walk without assistance
  • Having mobility impairments caused by lung disease, defective vision or cardiac, arthritic, neurological or orthopedic conditions
Placards and plates can only be used by the individual to whom the placard or plate is issued. Placards must be displayed from the vehicle's rearview mirror and plates replace the license plates on the back of the vehicle.

Getting a Plate or Placard

Individuals must apply and qualify, as indicated in the table below, for a placard or plate at an NCDMV license plate agency.
