The process to apply or renew a Blue Badge has changed.
All applications are now submitted online here.
You will be asked to answer questions about your disability, check your eligibility and fill in an online application form to apply for or renew a Blue Badge. Your application will then be sent to Leeds City Council for a decision. The cost of a Blue Badge remains £10.
The form can take up to 45 minutes to complete. Before you start you’ll need the following information to hand:
- the details of your current Blue Badge (if you have one)
- a digital or signed photo
- your National Insurance number
- proof of identification
- proof of residency
- eligibility criteria (benefit entitlement letters)
Support to Complete your Application
Leeds libraries, One Stop Centres and Community Hubs have free computers available for you to use and staff will provide help with your online application if you require it.
Photographs and Documents
If you cannot upload these with your application, submit the application without them. You can take your documents to a library, One Stop Centre or Community Hub. Staff will scan your documents and send them by email direct to the Blue Badge Team. Alternatively, you can post copies of your documents to: Blue Badge Team, PO Box 657, Leeds, LS1 9BS.
