Renew your blue badge
We will not automatically send you a new badge when your current one expires.The expiry date is displayed on the current badge. It is your responsibility to re-apply for a new blue badge.
Please ensure you keep your contact details with us up to date so that any correspondence we may send goes to the right address.
How to re-apply
You will have to go through the same process as you would to apply for the first time. This is because:
- your situation (and what you are eligible for) might have changed
- the criteria for getting a blue badge might have changed. We need to assess your situation against the latest criteria. You need to fill out a new application form and provide as much information as possible along with all of the evidence requested.
If you are moving address, but are staying within Nottinghamshire, you should send proof of your new address to us so we can keep your record up to date. You can do this via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
The Blue Badge Team
Nottinghamshire County Council
Customer Service Centre
PO Box 9320
This will make sure that any correspondence we may send out will go to the right address.
Moving to another council area
If you are moving to another council area you can carry on using your badge until it is due to expire.
Eight weeks before the expiry date you will need to apply for your badge again via your new council area, using your new address.
If you have changed your vehicle you don't need to inform us. As the blue badge can be used in any vehicle, we don't need to have a record of your new registration number.
