Replacement Handicap Permits Available Online Through Nebraska DMV
LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced the launch of a new free online service for individuals who hold a valid handicap parking permit. The Handicap Parking Permit Public Access application allows users to request a second handicap parking permit or a replacement permit online.
The DMV receives on average 160 requests monthly for replacement handicap parking permit placards. Prior to this new online service, individuals had to mail an application or visit a DMV office to request the replacement. Now they are able to do so online.
This new service was launched in conjunction with a redesign of the existing Handicap Parking Permit online service for medical professionals that was released earlier in 2012. The new web interface for these services is more user-friendly across devices, allowing for better compatibility with tablets and even mobile phones.
The two services were designed to streamline an over-burdened and over-complicated paper process where the responsibility fell to the patient who was already facing mobility challenges. Now, in place of visiting a DMV office to obtain and submit forms, the patient can simply visit their medical professional to apply for an original parking permit. And, they may now submit requests for an additional permit for a second vehicle or a replacement for a lost or mutilated permit from the comfort of their home without intervention by their doctor and without obtaining or submitting any forms. The patient receives the new handicap permit placard and identification card in the mail five to seven days later.
"We were able to address a cumbersome government process with the launch of the Medical Professional application last year, and are very excited to introduce even more convenience to Nebraska citizens with the new Handicap Permit Public Access application which allows permit holders to self-service their government needs," says Rhonda K. Lahm, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles has a large and growing suite of online services available at www.ClickDMV.ne.gov including:

Since the launch of the online Handicap Parking Permit system, over 6,500 new and renewal placards have been processed online by medical professionals.
