If you have received your renewal letter, you can renew your badge online.


You will need to provide:

  • Name change: send photocopied proof of identification in your new name

If you have an automatic entitlement linked to a benefit then you will also need to provide:

  • Higher rate component of Disability Living Allowance - a photocopy of your official award letter, dated in the last 2 years and stating the end date of your award
  • Personal Independent Payment - a full copy of your award letter, dated in the last 2 years that states the end date of your award and includes the 'moving around' descriptor and points awarded
