Blue badge - frequently asked questions

What happens when my badge is due to expire?

Your badge is valid for a period of 3 years, unless we have stated otherwise.

The date of expiry is clearly marked on your badge, both on the front and on the back.

Blue Badge example

We will send you a reminder 3 months before your badge is due to expire, either by post or by email, depending on your preference.

We do not send out application forms - applications are made using GOV.UK - please see the 'How can I apply' section to find out what your options are.

To ensure that you receive your new badge in time, so that you have it as soon as your old one expires, please complete your application and provide all of the required information as soon as possible after receiving your reminder.
