Blue Badge scheme

Report misuse of a Blue Badge

The legislation in the Disabled Persons' Parking Badges (Scotland) Act 2014 gives Local Authorities the power to cancel badges which have been reported lost or stolen and confiscate badges that are being misused.

When reporting the misuse of a Blue Badge, it will help us if you can provide:

  • the Blue Badge number and expiry date (if known)
  • details of how the badge is being misused - for example, someone else is using the badge when the badge holder is not in the vehicle or the vehicle is parked illegally
  • the name, address and vehicle registration number of the badge holder (if known)
  • the name, address and vehicle registration number of the person misusing the badge (if known)
