The cost of a Blue Badge is £10. 

How long your Blue Badge is valid

A Blue Badge is normally valid for 3 years.

If your Blue Badge is linked to Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement or Personal Independence Payment, your badge will be valid for the period that you're in receipt of that allowance (if that period is less than 3 years).

If you have a Blue Badge because your child has a condition which means they need close access to medical equipment or a vehicle to be taken for treatment quickly and is under 3 years old, the badge will be valid until the day immediately following their 3rd birthday.

Renew your Blue Badge

We'll try to remind you, 12 weeks before your blue badge expires by email or letter. Please make sure you let us know if you change your address and/or email address.

A renewal is treated as a brand new application so include as much detail as before.
