To obtain permanent placards, your doctor must complete form VTR-214 (Application for Disabled Plates/Placards). The doctor can either notarize the form or provide a written prescription that indicates that the disability is permanent. The application, along with the prescription, if applicable, can be mailed to Dallas County Tax Office, 500 Elm Street, Dallas, Texas 75202, or visit the nearest tax office location. A permanent placard is issued for a time period of four (4) years and there is no fee.
To obtain a temporary placard, the same paperwork is required as the permanent placard, except the prescription will state the disability is temporary in nature. Temporary placards are issued for a period of six (6) months and are $5.00 per placard.
For disabled license plates, the same paperwork is required as permanent placards, along with the information of the vehicle that the disabled plates will be assigned to.
