Exemption Accounts FAQs

If you have made a journey on a Blue Badge account and the Blue Badge holder was not present, please fill in the form to make your payment here.

You qualify for exempt travel through the Tyne Tunnels if you either:

  • are a Blue Badge Holder
  • are entitled to nil road tax either through the Motability Scheme or if your vehicle is exempt due to disability

To apply for a Blue Badge exemption account click here, or a Disability Tax exemption click here.

Renewals are required annually. Please visit our renewal form here.

You can only register one vehicle against your exemption. You will have the option to change your registered vehicle once per calendar month. Blue Badge holders can self-serve and manage their own vehicle registration number changes against their exemption via their online account. Please login to your account to do this.
