Apply for or renew a Blue Badge
Visit our eligibility page to determine if you are automatically eligible for a Blue Badge before applying online.
Once you have completed and submitted your online application you will receive an email with further instructions. For example where and how you can send in your proof of identity, proof of address and your additional information such as a recently dated Disability Living Allowance statement.
Once we have received your application we will get in touch if we need any more information or if we decide that you need a walking assessment. We will contact you to let you know if your application has not been successful. You can check the status of your application online, using the the gov.uk website.
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.
