In brief: Doubtful

While each case is unique, chondromalacia of the patella is very common.
Furthermore, walking on level ground should not be too painful. For these reasons, i would be very reluctant to provide handicapped parking privileges to a patient with this issue.

In brief: Depends

Talk to your doctor about this.
It more depends on whether your particular case and your impairment and disability prevents you from walking medium distances.
