Assessment of applications

Please note that the Doctor’s or Occupational Therapist’s statement or signature on the documents you provide does not automatically mean that you are eligible for an ACROD Parking Permit.

The ACROD Parking Program assessment team will assess each application against the eligibility criteria. If more information is needed to determine eligibility, the ACROD Parking Program may:

  • Contact the applicant (or legal guardian) to ask for additional information.
  • Contact the specialist or medical practitioner who has signed the report (if such a report is attached) to ask for additional information.

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.
