Apply for, or renew, a blue badge
Applications can only be made online. If you can't do this yourself, and don't have anyone who can apply for you, or if you need the Blue Badge information in braille or large print, please call or email us (Manchester residents only. If you live in another authority, please contact them for advice.)
If you need to renew your Blue Badge, we recommend that you re-apply about 15 weeks before your current badge expires. We no longer send reminder letters. If your application needs further assessment, processing is now taking up to 15 weeks
The charge for a Blue Badge is £10, and we advise you to apply directly through the government website. There are other websites that offer to help with your application but they may charge for this service. To avoid paying extra, apply directly through the government website.
