Handicap individuals must have form SF0953 completed by a physician to obtain plates or placard. If purchasing a plate, an individual has to be a registered handicap person. Handicap license plates cost $24.00 plus applicable wheel tax. If an individual is permanently confined to a wheel chair, the plate is free. If a handicap individual obtains plates, the placard is free. If no plate is purchased, the placard is $21.50, and it is renewable every two years for $3.
