Beware of scams

It's free to apply for a Blue Badge. There's a £10 fee to cover the cost of sending a badge if you're successful.

Please be aware of Blue Badge scams where you may be charged more than £10 for an application. These websites are not associated with the Blue Badge service and the application form supplied by these websites is not accepted by local authorities.

Application timeframe

We'll normally be in touch within 4 weeks of you applying. It can take up to 10 weeks to fully process your application. This is because we may need you to attend a mobility assessment or require further evidence from you.

If you have saved your application, you will get an email each time you click ‘Save’ with a link to access the application again.

Ensure you are using the most recent email you have received as each link will change each time.

If you haven't received the emails, check your junk folder.

If you did not click ‘Save’ or ‘Submit', your application will not have been stored and you will need to start again.
