Check with the local planning and zoning agency having jurisdiction. The zoning code generally defines what a minimum size legal parking space is and what clearances (if inside a building) are required. These sizes typically vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction although are typically in the approximately 8' x 20' range.

Subject: Garage sizes
I know this is not an engineering question but I thought I would give it a try considering there are some architects on this list server. My question is; Is there a legal definition of the minimum size of a 2 car garage? I have a home owner dispute on whether a garage is a 2 car or 1+ car garage. With today’s large SUV’s what used to hold 2 cars can barely hold 1 H2. I always thought if the garage door was 8’ or 9’ wide then it would be considered 1 car and if the door was 16’ wide then it would be a 2 car. This may be one of those in the eye of the beholder questions but any help would be appreciated.
