Apply for or renew a Blue Badge by post

Apply online

We recommend applying for a Blue Badge online because if everything is correct you will receive your badge faster.

  • A friend, relative or representative who you trust, can apply online on your behalf with your permission.
  • You can immediately check that you are eligible.
  • You can upload your photograph, proof of address, proof of ID, eligibility documents and you can pay online.

You can also apply for an organisation online.

How to apply by post

If you are unable to apply online, which is the quickest way you can apply by post. You can download a blue badge application form, below.

Applicants need to live in Surrey or pay their council tax to Surrey County Council. If you are unsure who to apply to you can check using the Postcode Checker.

Step 1: Download the application form

You can download the PDF version of the appropriate application form below.

The forms and notes are also available from libraries . Or if you are unable to download and print off our pdf versions of the forms, you can fill in our request form for a printed copy.

Step 2: Read the notes and complete the form

  • Read the notes that come with the form to check that you are eligible for a Blue Badge.
  • Please remember a representative, someone you trust can complete the form on your behalf but the information needs to be about you and you should sign the form.

Step 3: Gather your supporting documents

Please do not send original documents. Copies are acceptable and it is quicker if you upload them online.

You will need to have some documents to hand, ready to complete your application. You will need:

  1. Proof of identity (for new applicants only): such as a copy of a birth/adoption certificate or, marriage/divorce certificate, or civil partnership/dissolution certificate, or valid driving licence or passport.
  2. Serial number and expiry date 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. If you wish you can also provide additional information from your doctor, occupational therapist, or physiotherapist. If you are applying for a child you can provide an EHCP, special needs report, or paediatric doctor's report. These documents are particularly important if you are applying under the criteria for non-visible (hidden) disabilities as all the questions must be answered and supported by professionals' evidence.
  5. Payment: a Blue badge costs £10. If applying by post we can send you a link by email to make the payment or you can pay by cheque or postal order which should be made payable to Surrey County Council.
  6. Photograph: a passport sized colour photograph, taken within the last six months, that shows your face clearly.

You can also check the notes that accompany the application form for guidance about which documents are acceptable for proof of identity and proof of address.

Step 4: Send the form, payment and documents to us

If you apply online you can upload your documents and pay online at the appropriate point in the application process. If you apply by post send your form, proof of ID (only required for new applications) proof of address, any supporting eligibility documents and the £10 payment to the Blue Badge Team.

Please ensure you send all the documents requested. If you do not your application cannot be processed and will be delayed.
