Can I get a blue parking badge?

You are automatically eligible to apply for a Blue Badge without further assessment if you are registered blind (severely sight impaired). You are still eligible to apply if you are registered partially sighted (sight impaired) but you will need to have an assessment first.

You will need to enclose your Certificate of Vision Impairment (CVI) or medical evidence as proof.

Contact your local council's social services department for more information or contact the Blue Badge Initial Enquiry Support Service:


Northern Ireland



More information is also available on GOV.UK blue badge website.
