The Blue Badge scheme is operated by your local authority and helps you to park closer to your destination if you’re disabled.

If you have been awarded PIP with at least 8 points from the Moving Around activity then you will automatically qualify for a Blue Badge. You will also qualify automatically if you are awarded 10 points under Planning And Following A Journey under 1e.  You will still need to apply to your local authority (see below) and you will need to provide proof of your award with your application.

Even if you have not been awarded enough points to qualify automatically for a Blue Badge you can still apply for one from your local authority. You will have to fill in a form giving details of the problems you have with walking.

You can complete the form on line at or you can telephone your local authority and ask for a form.
