How to renew a Blue Badge
When your current badge is nearing expiry you will need to re-apply to the local issuing authority where you live. All local authorities follow the same guidelines, however they may deal with your application in a different way and you may be asked to attend a walking assessment. It is therefore advisable to apply at least six weeks before your badge expires.
