Overview

The Blue Badge scheme provides parking concessions for people with severe mobility problems who have difficulty using public transport. The scheme operates all over the UK.

We administer the Blue Badge service locally on behalf of the Department for Transport.

We do not send reminders when your Blue Badge is due to expire. You are responsible for re-applying for your badge. We recommend you apply at least 4 weeks before the expiry date of your current badge.

You need to apply for your Blue Badge online. We no longer provide paper application forms.

There is no upper age limit for Blue Badges. If you meet the criteria for automatic entitlement, or your mobility is sufficiently limited, you can apply. 

Find out if you are eligible to apply for a Blue Badge on the GOV.UK website.
