Who is eligible for a blue badge?
- People on certain benefits or who are registered blind are automatically eligible for a badge.
- Other disabled people may be eligible for a badge but it will depend on the results of a mobility assessment.
- Children under 3 may be eligible depending on certain conditions.
- Organisation's caring for disabled people meeting the eligibility criteria may be able to get a badge, but this is entirely at the county council's discretion.
Blue Badges are issued to individual people not vehicles. This means you can use a Blue Badge both as a driver and a passenger. You can also transfer your Blue Badge to whichever vehicle you are using for a particular journey.
