Disabled resident's parking permit

A disabled resident's parking permit (BVG) enables you to park your car in all paid parking spaces in The Hague without paying.

Apply

Would you like to apply for a disabled resident's parking permit? Then you need to have a European Disabled Person's Parking Card for drivers or the combination drivers/passengers. You do not have this card? Then you can apply for it when you apply for the disabled resident's parking permit (BVG) using the Parking facilities for people with a disability application form.

Due to the coronavirus measures the GGD is currently conducting only very few medical assessments for the European Disabled Person’s Parking Card. The GGD will deal with new applications after the lockdown. Expect there to be a waiting list.

Paying for the parking permit

You can only pay by giving authorisation for direct debit. You will pay for your permit for 12 months. The permit year is from 1 December to 30 November. Thereafter your permit will automatically be extended for a year once payment is received. Have the fees changed? Then you will pay the new fee when the permit is extended.

How long does it take?

Does it appear from your medical assessment that you meet the conditions for a European Disabled Person's Parking Card? Or do you already have a European Disabled Person's Parking Card? Then you will receive a decision from the Municipal Parking Division within 1 week on whether you get the disabled resident's parking permit.

No resident's pass

Residents do not need a pass to park in their permit area. Parking wardens scan the number plates of parked cars to check if the car is parked in the correct area (this is called 'number plate parking').
