Issuing disabled parking badges

Decisions concerning the issuing of disabled parking badges are made by Stavanger municipality, represented by Stavanger Parkeringsselskap KF. One condition for being issued with such a badge is that you are registered in the National Population Register in Stavanger municipality. Permits will be issued following a strict and discretionary assessment where the aim is to allocate spaces to those most in need of them. Permits will primarily be allocated to those who, in addition to reduced mobility, have difficulties finding a parking space near their home or work and/or who need to visit the hospital or other places frequently for medical treatment.

Parking permit preconditions

As an applicant, you need to document that you cannot walk, or have difficulty moving, a certain distance. A medical certificate provides the medical basis for assessing your health conditions.

In addition, you must be able to document that you have a special need to park by your home and/or work, or in connection with other regular, frequent and necessary activities, such as doctor’s visits or other forms of treatment.
