Assessment of Applications

The ACROD Parking Program assessment team will assess each application against the eligibility criteria. If we need more information, the ACROD Parking Program team may:

  • Contact the applicant (or legal guardian) to ask for additional information; or
  • Contact the specialist or medical practitioner who signed the application form or attached documents to ask for additional information.

Depending on the applicant’s circumstances, we may issue a renewable or a temporary ACROD Parking Permit.

Renewable permits are issued to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria, and their condition is expected to last for the rest of their life despite treatment and therapy options. These permits are renewed every 2 years.

Temporary permits are issued to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria, and their condition is expected to improve, or may improve in the future. Temporary permits are issued for 6 or 12 months and can be extended once.

The ACROD Parking Program receives a high number of applications. Processing your application may take up to 20 working days from the date your application is received. This does not include mailing time. If your application is not successful, we will inform you about our appeals process.
