Register and apply online
You will need to set up an account before you apply. We'll ask you to give your email address and set a password.
You can also use this form to renew a badge.
It's very important you attach all of the appropriate information and supporting evidence to your application so that it is not delayed.
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.
It can take up to 10 weeks to process your application. This is because we may need you to attend a mobility assessment or require further evidence from you.
