Apply for or renew a Blue Badge
If you would like to apply for, or renew, a Blue Badge, you can do this on the GOV.UK website. It must be completed in full even if you have held a Blue Badge before. You will need (where relevant):
- National Insurance (NI) number
- driving licence number
- expiry date of Higher Rate Mobility Allowance or War Pension
- details of your doctor and any specialists you see
- details of any medication and the dosage
Make a note of the reference number. You can pay and upload a photo online (passport photo rules apply).
What happens next
If you are automatically eligible then allow 2 weeks for your badge to be posted. If it 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. This method may take 6 weeks from receipt of all documents, including payment.
You can also apply for a replacement Blue Badge by paper.
