Instructions for Medical Professionals Accessing Disability Parking Electronic Application

The Secretary of State's Office has developed a new electronic application process to help medical professionals and their patients renew their disabled parking placards, which will be expiring throughout 2018. Below are instructions on how to use the electronic renewal application.

Please visit our FAQ page if you have any questions about filing the electronic application.

  1. Visit https://www.ilsos.gov/placardverification/. You should see "Office of the Illinois Secretary of State" at the top.

  2. Read the instructions on the page, and where indicated, type in the following to log on:
    1. Illinois Medical Professional License Number
    2. Last name
    3. Last four digits of social security number

  3. Read the fraud warning and click on the "Submit" button.
    Note: Your name, license number and SSN will be checked against the records of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation before you are allowed to proceed.

  4. Once you have been allowed access to the system, type in the patient’s current disability placard number and their PIN, then click on "Submit." 
    Note: The patient has already been advised to bring their renewal letter with them to their medical professional visit. The letter contains the placard number and the PIN.

  5. Verify patient information that appears on the computer screen and provide the required medical information about the patient.
    Note: If the required fields of the medical information are not filled in correctly, the electronic application will be rejected.

  6. Read and click on the "Attestation" at the bottom of the screen once the medical information has been provided.

  7. If the application is accepted, a confirmation will appear on the screen which can be printed and placed in the patient's file or given to the patient to take home.

For any problems submitting the electronic application, please call the Secretary of State’s Office at 217-782-2258.
