You will need to send us some documents with your completed form. To prevent any delays, make sure that you have all of the following:

Copies of which need to be counter signed and dated by a professional person such as a pharmacist, a business professional, a member of a professional body. Stating that they have seen the original.
  2. Serial number of your current Blue Badge (if you have one).
  3. Proof of address: a copy of a document dated within the last 12 months with your address on it, such as a council tax or utility bill, or bank statement or prescription request.
  4. Any other documents that we have requested in the form that would prove your eligibility, and if you wish, you can also provide additional information from your doctor, occupational therapist or physiotherapist.
  5. Payment: a Blue badge cost £10. If applying by post you can only pay by cheque or postal order and they should be made payable to Surrey County Council. You cannot pay by card if you apply by post.
