Accessible Parking Spaces mapped

The Automobile and Touring Club of Finland (Hereby, ”AL”) started a project in 2019, to map so called ”disabled parking spaces” into a single, user-friendly platform.  This map is found from AL´s free of Charge mobile Application found from Google Play and App store with a search phrase ”Autoliitto”.


The parking card for people with reduced mobility makes using the car more easier for the people who are entitled to have the card. The card may be admitted to either fixed term use or to a permanent use. (Note: ”a permanent” Card period is 10 years. After that, the holder applies for the card again, to get another 10 year card. The renewal process does not require doctors certificate). The applicant does not need to have a driver´s license, but the card may only be used when the owner of it is travelling in the car.

Example case: a child with a disability. The parents may apply for the card for the child, and then use it when traveling with  the child.

The qualifications to obtain the card is defined by a general doctor through a Doctor´s Certificate. The actual application may be applied either from Traficom or from Ajovarma´s local office.

Parking with the Card for people with reduced mobility

In public areas, the Card enables to park in accessible parking spaces (with ISA-symbol) and normal parking spaces without paying a possibly applicable parking charge. With the Card, parking is also allowed in zones, where regulars drivers are not allowed (a ”No parking” restriction zones) to do so. The Card holder is also exempt from any time limits a parking area may have.

Note! The parking may not cause any danger or major difficulties to occurring traffic.

In private areas (parking areas may be owned privatly as well) the card holder has to apply with the terms and conditions stated in a specific sign when entering the parking area. The terms may vary, so make sure you read them through.

Note! As a rule, if the private parking area has a parking charge, also the Card Holder has to pay the charge.

Please read more about the parking practises from the pages of The Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities.

The Reciprogal recognition of the Parking Card in EU:

The Parking Card for people with reduced mobility can be used abroad. It´s valid in all EU countries, but  local regulations has to be followed. Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has put together a website, where those regulations are gathered.
