Disabled parking permit
When you have a European disability parking card, you can request a free disabled parking permit for people with a disability from the municipality of Utrecht. Even if you don't live there. The disabled parking permit allows you to park for free in paid parking areas in the municipality of Utrecht.
If you have a driver card (B), the parking permit will have a fixed number plate. If you have a passenger card (P) or combi card (B/P), you can opt for a parking permit with a fixed number plate or a parking permit with varying number plates.
