Renew a Blue Badge

How to renew a disabled parking Blue Badge.

When to renew

You will only be able to renew your Blue Badge six weeks or less before the expiry date. 

To renew an organisational Blue Badge please use the Blue Badges for organisations form.

What you will need

In order to renew your Blue Badge, you will need to provide your current Blue Badge number (you'll find it on the front of your badge on the left-hand side.)

You will need to supply additional documents if you are renewing a Blue Badge under the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP) criteria, or if there have been any changes to your personal details.

You'll need access to an email account to renew online. Need help setting up an email account?

If your application is successful, your Blue Badge will cost £10. Please do not send payment until requested.

Changes to your personal details

You need to tell us if any of the following details have changed.

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your appearance

Visit the check your documents page for a list of documents that are acceptable for each of these changes.

DLA or PIP renewals

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) mobility component

If you applied under the DLA higher rate mobility component criterion, you need to provide either:

  • a photo or scanned image of your most recent Disability Living Allowance uprating letter which shows you receive the highest rate for the mobility component - letters are usually sent out in March confirming your payments from April. This is the letter we need to see, even if you have been awarded DLA for life.  
  • or a letter of entitlement dated within the last year that shows you are entitled to the high rate of the mobility component of DLA.

When you upload your letter, it must clearly show:

  • your name and address
  • the date of the letter
  • that you receive the highest rate for the mobility component
  • the expiry date of the award.

The Blue Badge will only be issued up to the end date of the award.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) mobility component

If you applied under the 8 points or more of the mobility component of PIP, you need to provide:

  • a photo or scanned image of your most recent letter from the Department for Work and Pensions - letters are usually sent out in March confirming your payments from April. This is the letter we need to see, even if you have been awarded PIP for life. If you have only recently been awarded this benefit, then you should provide the award letter.

When you upload your letter, it must clearly show:

  • your name and address
  • the date of the letter
  • that you receive 8 points or more on the mobility component of PIP
  • the breakdown of points
  • the expiry date of the award.

The Blue Badge will only be issued up to the end date of the award.

How to supply your documents

The quickest way to supply your documents is to upload them directly to the form. You can upload a photo or a scanned image from your computer, smartphone, tablet or scanner.

If you are unable to upload your documents to the form, you can continue and send the application. However, you will then need to either; return to the form later to upload your documents, or take your documents to one of the libraries below to be validated.
