The Blue Badge scheme is for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems. It allows the badge holder to park on-street close to where they need to go.
A Blue Badge is normally valid for 3 years. The badge holder can use it in any vehicle, whether they are the driver or a passenger. It can be used throughout Europe.
The charge for a Blue Badge is £10 and this applies for new, renewal and replacement badges.

The scheme does not apply to off-street car parks (you will need to check any car park that you use to see if you have to pay and if there are any restrictions).
