Answer questions about your disability, check your eligibility and fill in an application form to apply for or renew a Blue Badge. Your application will then be sent to your council for a decision.
Before you start
You’ll need the following to apply for or renew your Blue Badge:
- the details of your current Blue Badge (if you have one)
- a digital or signed photo
- your National Insurance number
- proof of identification
- proof of residency
Ask your council to find out how long before the expiry date you should renew.
If your application is refused
Your council should tell you why you’re not eligible for a Blue Badge.
You can ask them to reconsider your case if you do not think all the important information you provided was taken into account.
You can also re-apply if your mobility problems become more serious.
