If you need a hang tag or handicapped plate, then you should ask one of your child's doctors for the form, as they will need to fill out the form & sign it. Then, once you have the completed form, depending on your state, you will need to file it with the DMV and possibly pay a fee. There are two types of hang tags - temporary, which is only good for 6 months, and permanent, which is good for up to 10 years - so make sure you ask for the right one. If you get a license plate, I believe there is a limit on those, too, for when you must recertify your continued need for it, but that varies from state to state.
