A Permanent Parking Permit is blue in color, is valid for 4 years and is free. 

A Temporary Parking Permit is red in color, is valid for up to 6 months at a time, cannot be renewed without recertification from a doctor and costs $15.

An Application for Disabled Person Parking Permit must be accurately filled out and signed by your physician before any original, renewal or replacement permit can be issued.

Not a Manatee County resident? Out-of-County residents applying for, or renewing, a parking permit can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.
