COVID-19 alert update: Following current government guidelines, there will be no face-to-face blue badge assessments.
If we need to do an assessment, we will do this over the phone. We will let you know the date and time of your phone assessment.
We no longer accept paper application forms. You can apply online:
- for a new blue badge
- to renew your blue badge
- if your badge is due to expire within the next 12 weeks
Your badge will be issued in due course.
Check to see if you are eligible to make a blue badge application.
Apply or renew your blue badge
Other ways of applying
If you cannot apply online, call us on 01922 653560 or email the blue badge team for help with making an application.
After the assessment
A blue badge costs £10.00. You can pay online.
How long will it take to receive my blue badge?
- For a first application, we will issue the badge within 28 days if your application is successful.
- For a renewal, please apply at least eight weeks before your blue badge expires.
If your application is unsuccessful
We will write to tell you, and refund your payment. If you do not agree with the decision, the letter you received will tell you how to appeal. We will confirm by email the results of the appeal; this decision is final.
You can reapply for a blue badge after six months (or earlier if your mobility has deteriorated significantly).
Expired badges must be returned to Walsall Council. It is illegal to use and expired badge and there are heavy fines if one is used.
