Apply for or renew your Blue Badge
Apply or renew for yourself, or on behalf of someone
19/12/19: Due to a machine failure at the badge production company there is currently a week’s delay in badges being sent out.
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
Check the eligibility criteria
After you have made your application or renewal it can take up to 12 weeks to receive the badge.
Apply on behalf of an organisation
Some organisations may be eligible if they care for and transport disabled people, who themselves meet the eligibility criteria for a badge. If you are looking to make an application as an organisation please complete the above process or email us for an application form.
Apply on behalf of a terminally ill patient
GPs, Consultants and specialist nurses (e.g. palliative care) can submit a fast-track application on behalf of a terminally ill patient with a prognosis of 12 months or less.
Fast-track applications don't require a photo or payment. Once we receive the completed form from the healthcare professional, the badge will be sent to the patient's home address within 15 working days.
If you have any queries or need assistance, please contact us.
