Using your Blue Badge
When you receive your Blue Badge, you will also receive a Rights and Responsibilities booklet.
This booklet details how and when your badge should be used, including where you can and can’t park. You can view the booklet on the Department for Transport website. If you would prefer a paper copy please call 0345 603 7630. 

Important things to remember

  • Your Blue Badge must be displayed on top of the dashboard or facia panel of the vehicle
  • The side showing the wheelchair symbol must face forward so the expiry date is legible from outside the vehicle
  • Badges should only be displayed when using parking concessions and not left permanently inside vehicles. 

Using your Blue Badge abroad

Your Rights and Responsibilities booklet, sent with your Blue Badge, provides information on using your badge abroad. You can view the booklet on the Department for Transport website. If you would prefer a paper copy please call 0345 603 7630.
