Blue Badge scheme

Applications and renewals

A Blue Badge costs £20.

There are Blue Badge advice websites which offer to help you with your application but charge around £50 for this. Some of these are scams and if you use them your application may not reach us.

The quickest and easiest way to apply for a badge is through the government's website.

  • You can apply at any time of the day or night.
  • Someone else can complete the form for you if you can't do it yourself.
  • When you apply you will get a ‘tracking reference number'. Note this reference straight away exactly as it appears on screen.

Use your tracking reference number to:

  • save and return to your application before submitting it
  • check the progress of your application
