Apply for or renew a Blue Badge

The Blue Badge scheme helps those with severe mobility problems, who have difficulty using public transport, to park close to where they need to go. This national arrangement of parking concessions applies whether they travel as drivers or passengers.

The scheme also applies to those registered blind, as well as people with severe upper limb disabilities who regularly drive but have considerable difficulty in operating parking meters.

The national concession applies only to on-street parking, not to private car parks and some hospitals.

There are two types of Blue Badge - one for individual holders and one for organisational holders. Please ensure you request the correct one as it may delay the process if you don't.

The application process is the same for both new applicants and current holders whose Blue Badge is due to expire. There is no guarantee that an existing Blue Badge will be renewed based on previous information provided.
