It's important that the £10 fee is paid when you submit your application, if you don't, your application may be delayed or you may not receive a badge. If your application is not successful, the money will be refunded to you.
Whichever method you choose to pay:
- for new applications provide your full name and postcode
- for renewals and lost or stolen badges provide your Blue Badge reference number, or if you do not have it, your full name and postcode
Our preferred way to apply and pay for a Blue Badge is by using gov.uk. Payment can be made at the end of the gov.uk application form.
