Blue Badge Scheme


The Blue Badge scheme enables people who meet the eligibility criteria to maximise their independence by improving their access to services and facilities. They can be the driver or a passenger.

A person does not have to drive to apply for a Blue Badge. The badge is for an individual and it can be used for any car when that person is a passenger.


Before you apply for a Blue Badge, please check if you are eligible​.  

You must provide proof of your eligibility whether this is your first application or if you are renewing your Blue Badge.

Please do not re-apply any earlier than 4 weeks before the expiry date on your badge.


You can apply for a Blue Badge online, or alternatively, someone can complete the online form on your behalf.

You will need to provide a photo or scan of your:

  • proof of identity (such as a birth certificate, passport, driving licence or bus pass)
  • proof of address dated within the last 12 months (such as a council tax bill, benefit letter or utility bill)
  • proof of eligibility if applying under the automatic qualification
  • proof of your medical condition and how it affects your mobility if applying under the discretionary qualification

 You will also need to provide: 

  • your National Insurance Number (if you have one)
  • the details of your current Blue Badge (if you are renewing)
  • a recent digital passport style photograph.  It can be taken yourself, but it must have been taken within the last 3 months.  We are UNABLE to accept photos with any kind of filter or enhancement applied.

Apply for a Blue Badge

Alternatively you can book an appointment at one of our Customer Care Centres.
