Misuse of Blue Badge

You should only use your badge if you are driving or a passenger in a vehicle. Giving someone else your badge counts as misuse.

It is a criminal offence for you or anyone else to misuse your badge, and it can lead to a £1,000 fine.

Lost or stolen badges

If your badge is lost or stolen, please contact the Blue Badge administrator.
