I have a disabled person parking permit and/or wheelchair symbol on my license plate. Can my spouse use it to park in a disabled person parking space when I am not riding in the vehicle?

No; parking permits and license plates with a wheelchair symbol are issued to the person designated on the registration and are not interchangeable between spouses or anyone else. (The disabled person's Florida driver license or ID card number is printed on the decal affixed to the parking permit to assist law enforcement.)

In order to park in a designated handicap parking place the person that qualified for the permit/plate must be in the vehicle.
