I got the form from my dr. The ortho the first 6 months and then my pcp. They should have the forms in the office and they will sign them and you bring it to a tag/registration office. That's how we do it here in NC anyway. I paid $5 for each. We had to have one for each vehicle as we filled out an actual registration card with vehicle numbers and all. I don't use it all the time, but sometimes it is such a blessing. PS. Remember to take it off the rear view mirror when driving.
