Disabled persons parking permit

We administer the Disabled Persons Parking Scheme in Wodonga. You must be a resident of Wodonga to apply for a disabled persons’ parking permit. There are two categories for different levels of disability parking labels:

  • Category one - blue and white label
    The holder is entitled to park a vehicle in a bay reserved for disabled motorists only, for the specified time only, or may park a vehicle in an ordinary area or bay for twice the specified time, upon payment of an initial parking fee if applicable. This is for use of a person:
    • In a wheelchair or who is required to use a complex walking aid (more than one contact point on the ground) and cannot access a vehicle in a standard size parking bay; or
    • An acute or chronic illness in which minimal walking may endanger his/her health; or
    • A significant intellectual disability such that he/she is an extreme danger to himself/herself and others in a public place without continuous attendance by a carer

  • Category two -green and white label
    The holder may park a vehicle in an ordinary parking area for twice the specific time, but is not entitled to park in the reserved bay for disabled motorists only. This is for a person who has a significant ambulatory disability or severe illness which does not affect their ability to walk distances but will require rest breaks when continuous walking is undertaken.

To apply for a permit, you need to complete the application form prior to forwarding it to your doctor to sign. Once signed by your doctor and received by the council, a label will then be posted to you (please allow up to two weeks as the labels are printed by a supplier).

There is no fee for the permit. The permit is valid throughout Australia, however, you must adhere to the regulations of the municipality you are visiting.


Organisations only

We also have a disabled person's parking permit for organisations, for organisations in Wodonga only. To apply for this permit, you must complete the application form.

Once this permit has been received by the council, a label will then be posted to you (please allow up to two weeks as the labels are printed by a supplier). There is no fee for the permit.


Parking infringements

You can apply for a parking infringement to be reviewed if you believe it was issued as an error. The application for review must be submitted prior to the due date by filling out the general application for review form.

If you were not driving the car at the time of the infringement, you will need to fill out the specific owner onus form that relates to your situation. Please do not send in your infringement notice. Keep this as a record of the infringement notice. 

If you need to request a payment arrangement for your infringement, please download the application form.

If you need to know more about parking and the law, read the Victoria Law Foundation's Parking, the law and you booklet.

PLEASE NOTE: That you cannot use a vehicle to advertise or promote sale of goods (including sale of the vehicle itself) without a permit. Find out more here.
