Handicapped Permits

NOVA does not issue handicapped permits. Handicapped permits issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in any state or the District of Columbia will be honored on campuses. It is not necessary to purchase a NOVA permit if a valid DMV handicapped permit is displayed while parking in a NOVA handicapped space. Handicapped permits must be valid, displayed properly, and used only by the person(s) to whom they were issued. It is a violation of Virginia state law to misuse a handicapped permit.

Motorcycle Permits

Motorcycle permits are valid for use in surface parking lots only, and vehicles must be parked in designated areas.
