    This question was answered based upon current rules, regulations & statutes in effect on July 25, 2019

    One of my insured has a handicap placard

    At present he owns a car, but he is going to turn in his drivers license and turn his car over to his wife

    The family can still use the handicap placard in any car that this handicapped insured is a passenger correct ?

    Please review and advise

    ANSWER

    Kathy Cormier:  Yes, the placard is actually better than the plate because as long as the holder of the placard is in the vehicle the driver can park in a HP spot...no car is needed with a placard.
