Do you have a disability? Would you like access to parking spaces that make parking easier and are close to shops or your office? Then you can apply for a European Union (EU) parking card for people with disabilities. You can apply if you have had a disability for at least 6 months and with the help of crutches or a walking frame cannot walk more than 100 metres on your own.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Goeree-Overflakkee.

Request a disabled parking card

Do you have a disability? Then you can apply for a disabled parking card. Healthcare institutions can also apply for a parking card. You can ask for the parking ticket at the municipality.

Description

With a disabled parking card (GPK) you can park in disabled parking spaces in all EU countries), Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland. You must adhere to the local parking rules.

The GPK is registered in the name of a person. The GPK is not registered on the registration number. You can use the card for any car. The GPK is valid for a maximum of 5 years.

There are three types of cards:

driver card

You cannot walk independently more than 100 meters for at least six months. Not even with aids, such as a cane or crutches. You can drive your own car.

passenger card

You cannot walk independently more than 100 meters for at least six months. Not even with aids, such as a cane or crutches. You cannot drive a car yourself. You constantly need the help of a driver.

You can also request a combination of a driver card and a passenger card. For example, if you are permanently in a wheelchair.

Wheelchair dependent

If you are permanently confined to a wheelchair, you are without a doubt eligible for a GPK (driver card and/or passenger card). In most cases, a medical examination will take place to determine whether you are permanently confined to a wheelchair.
