TECHNICAL ADVISORY

DIVISION OF MOTOR VEHICLES

_______________________________________________________________________________________

To: Tax Collectors and License Plate Agents

From: Carl A. Ford, Director

Subject: Disabled Person Parking Permit Renewal Notices

Advisory Date: 02/15/05 Implementation Date: Immediately

Advisory Number: R05-01

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We are pleased to inform you that based on discussions with the counties, we have made technical changes to allow tax collectors and license plate agents to process disabled parking permit renewal notices in the same manner as your other renewal notices.

Currently, disabled person parking permit renewal notices are printed and mailed by the department. However, effective with the August 2005 renewals, parking permit renewal information will be provided to the counties in the same manner as the motor vehicle, vessel and mobile home renewal information.

What this means for the counties is that whatever process currently used for motor vehicle, vessel and mobile home renewal notices, will also be used for parking permit renewal notices. For example, if the department sends your county’s motor vehicle, vessel and mobile home renewal information to a vendor in order to process the renewal notices, the same would occur for the parking permit information. It would be sent to the vendor for processing. No action is required from your county in order for this change to take place.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact your Help Desk Representative.
