How to Submit a Blue Badge Exemption Application

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to complete your Blue Badge application form. If you need further assistance with your exemption, please call us on 0191 574 0031 and select option 3. A customer service agent can then assist you.

If you are having trouble submitting an online application, alternatively you can submit a paper copy of your application via post. A step-by-step guide for this can be found further down this page titled “Submitting a Paper Application via Post”.

Submitting an Online Application

Step 1 – Visit the application page on our website

This can be found here.

Step 2 – Choose from a new application, renewal or a change to an existing account

This is found under the “Application Stage” field of the application.

Step 3 – Enter your details and your nominated vehicle registration

This includes your email address, first and last name.

Then enter your Vehicle Registration Number you want to assign to your Blue Badge exemption. Please note this Vehicle Registration Number cannot be on a Pre-paid account and a Blue Badge exemption at the same time.

Step 4 – Enter your address details

Step 5 – Upload your supporting documents

This includes both sides of your Blue Badge along with a copy of a recent utility bill which shows your address. Alternatively, if you don’t have a utility bill you can use a copy of your DWP Proof of Entitlement letter or a copy of a letter from your GP showing proof of your address.

Uploading your documents

We have several file types that are accepted for you to upload your documents in. These include: PDF, JPG, JPEG or PNG.

How do I upload my documents?

For those submitting an application over a desktop/laptop device, we recommend you scan your documents onto your device. Follow your scanners manufacturer instructions to complete this.

For those submitting an application on a mobile device, using a photo of your documents is easiest and store these in your device’s photos app/camera roll. You can take a clear photo of your supporting documents.

For Windows/Mac devices:

Click “Choose File” and a window will then popup which you can select your chosen document, from where you have stored them.

For mobile devices:

Either take a photo of your supporting documents, or access a previously taken/stored version from your “Photo Library” (aka. Camera Roll).

After you have uploaded your documents, you can see if they have been attached as the “no file selected” text will change and show a preview of your supporting document.

Step 6 – Submit

After you have completed all fields and uploaded your supporting documents, make sure you agree to the terms and conditions and click “Send Application”.

A confirmation banner will be displayed to let you know if your application has been sent successfully.

Please note that you don’t have your exemption straight away and the application has to be processed. You will receive email confirmation when your exemption is ready and you can call us on 0191 574 0031 to speak with the customer service team on the status of your application.
