Apply for a Blue Badge
Complete the Blue Badge application on the GOV.UK website. It needs to be completed in full even if you have held a Blue Badge before, or are applying for the first time. You will need (where relevant):
- National Insurance Number
- Driving license number
- The expiry date of Higher Rate Mobility Allowance or War Pension
- Details of your doctor and any specialists you see
- Details of any medication you take including the dosage
Make a note of the tracking reference number. You can pay and upload a photo online (passport photo rules apply).
What happens next
If you are automatically eligible then please allow 2 weeks for your badge to be processed and posted. If your application requires you to have an independent mobility assessment, there is a 6 week wait as we are experiencing a high demand.
Postal or paper applications
You may also apply for a Blue Badge by paper and post your application. This method may take 6 weeks from receipt of all documents, including payment.
You can also apply for a replacement Blue Badge by paper and post your application.
