    My mom has one, the doctor has to fill out the paperwork for it but I'm not sure if you get the form from the doctor or the License Bureau...

    HI Gmom,

    it's me again (smile). you get the paperwork from DMV, take it to your doctor and have them fill it out, then take it back to DMV and they give you a tag or a window placket, whichever you choose on the paperwork.


    Good Day to you

    my mom got the window hanger one, that way she can use it no matter who she is with. She brings it home with her when she comes to see me even so we can put it in my car.... she's 2000 miles away. Good luck!

    In Pa you can get an application from any messenger service center (where you go to renew your registration, or get a T-plate). Then you have to have it filled out by your doctor.

    I have an appt on the 12th for my doc to fill one out..

    It's another one of those dreaded steps that I feel like I'm "giving in" to FM.

    Yep, I know it's a big step in our lives when we have to apply for a disabled tag - but sometimes it saves us from a great deal of miserable walking! I have the tag too, so I can move it to whatever car I'm traveling in.

    The day I asked my doctor if I was eligible for a disabled tag, he pulled out the form and completed it right on the spot. Where I live, the DMV Notarizes the form as part of the process (it may have been for my signature). A few years ago, if I remember correctly, the whole thing cost me $5.00 for the tag, ID and notary. I remember leaving DMV and thinking that was pretty cheap!

    Good luck - and feel no shame using it! On the really good days, park further out in the parking lot and enjoy the painfree stroll.

    Hugs,
