Blue Badge Travel

Apply for a Blue Badge.

Before you apply you will need the following:

Please note incomplete applications will be sent back to you for completion. We are doing this so we can process your application more efficiently.

  • Your personal information including National Insurance or Child Registration Number.
  • Any evidence of qualification for a Blue Badge as detailed in the eligibility criteria.
  • A photocopy of one of the following: passport, driving licence, birth certificate, marriage/divorce certificate, civil partnership/dissolution certificate as proof of your identity.
  • A photocopy of a recent bill (e.g. gas, electricity, phone, council tax) with your name and address showing, as proof of your address.
  • A colour passport style photograph taken in the last 3 years. It must be against a plain, pale background and show your head and shoulders facing the camera.

If we are able to process your application immediately based on the information you have given us you will receive your badge within 4 weeks of us receiving your application or, if you applied early you will receive it 2 weeks before your current badge's expiry date.

If you receive your new badge before the current badge's expiry date, it is only valid from the start date appearing on the badge. If your mobility problem is intermittent i.e. you have good and bad days, then please describe your average day when filling out the application.
