Unless an applicant's disability is readily observable and uncontested, a certificate signed by an authorized health care practitioner attesting to the disability must be submitted to the department before a special license plate is issued to a disabled person or veteran. The certifying health care practitioner must retain information supporting the certificate and make such information available for inspection by the Medical Board upon request by the department.
Information contained in a physician's certificate submitted to show the disability of the individual issued special license plates may be disclosed if requested by local law enforcement agencies or other local or state parking enforcement agencies. Such information shall not be disclosed to private or third-party parking citation processing agency. If there is a local review board any findings made by them may be disclosed to the department or other appropriate authorities for further review.
