The Blue Badge scheme supports people who cannot easily get around by helping them park closer to their destination. Blue Badges are also known as disabled parking permits.

A Blue Badge should not be used unless the badge holder is getting in or out of the vehicle at the place it’s parked.

Apply or renew online

You can apply for or renew your Blue Badge online.

A few weeks before the expiry date printed on your Blue Badge you should decide if you still need help to get around. If you do, you should apply for a new Blue Badge.

You might be required to attend a mobility assessment or provide up-to-date evidence of your eligibility.

All online applications will be sent to your local council who are responsible for the Blue Badge scheme in your area.

Councils have the option to charge up to £20 for a badge. You should ask your local council if there’s a charge before you make an application.

What you’ll need to apply or renew online:

  • National Insurance number or NHS Number
  • proof of your address
  • proof of your identity
  • a passport photo
  • details of your current badge (if you have one)

If you apply or renew online, you’ll be asked a few eligibility questions.
