Apply for a blue badge

To apply for a Blue Badge you will need to complete an application form online. The eligibility criteria for a blue badge has been changed to include people with hidden disabilities. 

The government website will let you know if you are automatically entitled to a blue badge. If you are not, you can still apply but may need to provide additional supporting information.

Apply for a blue badge on GOV.UK

Uploading Proofs

You can upload all your documents online on GOV.UK when making an application.

If you cannot upload your documents online, you can e-mail them to blue.badges@stoke.gov.uk


There is a £10.00 charge for a Blue Badge. Once you have submitted your application, you can make a payment using the link below. This payment will be refunded if your application is unsuccessful.

Make a blue badge payment

Blue badges are not renewed automatically so a new application form will need to be completed each time.

Apply 12 weeks before your badge expires to make sure we have enough time to process your application. 

Applications can be refused if you do not meet the criteria or if have not provided enough supporting information.

If your application is refused you can make an appeal to have your decision reviewed. This will need to be made in writing.

What happens if I lose my badge?

Apply for a replacement badge

There is a £10 charge for a replacement that you must make once the parking team have checked your details.
