Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge Scheme is designed to help people who are unable to walk, or who are virtually unable to walk, to travel independently, as either a driver or as a passenger, by allowing them to park close to their destination.

Registered blind people and people with very severe upper limb disabilities, who drive a vehicle but cannot turn a steering wheel by hand are also covered by the scheme.

The scheme gives concessions to Blue Badge holders when they park on-street and holders may also benefit from special parking bays. Please note it is Dundee City Council Policy to charge Β£20 for the issue of Blue Badges.

A few weeks before the expiry date printed on your Blue Badge you should decide if you still need help to get around. If you do, you should apply for a new Blue Badge. You might be required to attend a mobility assessment or provide up-to-date evidence of your eligibility.

What you'll need to apply or renew online:

  • National Insurance number or NHS Number
  • proof of your address
