Blue badge scheme

How do I know I am eligible for a Risk in Traffic Blue Badge?

The quickest and easiest way to check if you qualify is to use the government's eligibility checker.

Under Risk in Traffic (mental disorder/cognitive impairment) criteria, you will qualify for a Blue Badge without further assessment if you or the person you are applying on behalf of is aged three years or over, and

a) Have a diagnosed mental disorder or cognitive impairment and provide a letter that confirms this diagnosis.

b) A healthcare professional (excluding a GP) or a social worker can confirm that the applicant meets the definition by completing the questionnaire in the application form.
