The mobility parking permit scheme is an official, concession-parking scheme owned and administered by CCS Disability Action with the co-operation of local GPs and city and district councils.
A Mobility Parking Permit enables the permit-holder to park conveniently close to their destination, in accessible reserved parking spaces or park longer than the stated time in some standard car parks and metered spaces.

The mobility parking permit scheme is managed by CCS Disability Action. To learn more or to apply for a Mobility Parking Permit, visit the Mobility Parking website (managed by CCS Disability Action).
If you qualify for a mobility permit, you will receive a card from CCS Disability Action. In December 2012, the permits were changed to a new look permit in CCS Disability Action colours (green, black and white) with an expiry date, barcode and permit number on it. The barcode allows parking wardens to scan the permit to check ownership. Existing orange permits are still valid and will be replaced as they reach their individual expiry date.
The permit must be clearly displayed on the inside of the vehicle windscreen or on the dashboard while you are parked.
- Mobility permit-holders can park for double the time restriction indicated on parking signage in the following areas: P5, P10, P15, P30, P45, P60, P90 and P120, e.g. in a P30 space, permit holders can park for 60 minutes;
- In dedicated mobility parking areas, permit-holders can only park for the time restriction displayed on parking signage;
- In all on-street pay and display parking areas, permit-holders are given one additional hour of free parking on top of the time paid for, e.g. if a parking receipt is displayed with a expiry time of 2:15pm, the permit-holder can stay in the parking space until 3:15pm.
The Total Mobility scheme provides eligible registered individuals in the form of subsidised door-to-door transport services wherever Total Mobility transport providers (usually taxis) operate.
