The Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge Scheme

Do you qualify?

You are automatically eligible to apply for a blue badge if you are over two years old and either:

• receive the Higher Rate of the Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance

• are registered blind

• receive a War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement

You may also be eligible for a badge if you are over two years old and either:

• have a permanent and sustainable disability which means you cannot walk, or which makes walking very difficult

• drive a motor vehicle regularly, have a severe disability in both arms, and are unable to operate all or some types of parking meter (or would find it very difficult to operate them)

If you are a parent of a child who is less than two years old, you may apply for a badge for your child if they have a specific medical condition which means that they either:

• must always be accompanied by bulky medical equipment which cannot be carried around without great difficulty

• need to be kept near a vehicle at all times, so that they can, if necessary, be treated in the vehicle, or quickly driven to a place where they can be treated, such as a hospital
