Penalties for misuse

Misuse of a badge

Misuse of a Blue Badge is a serious offence.
  • Your badge can be withdrawn if you misuse it or allow others to misuse it.
  • It is a criminal offence for non-disabled people to use a badge. If they do so, they are liable to a fine of up to £1,000.
  • It is a criminal offence to drive a vehicle displaying a Blue Badge unless the badge holder is in the vehicle, or the vehicle is being driven by someone other than the badge holder for the purpose of entering or leaving an area (which is accessible only to vehicles displaying a Blue Badge) in order to pick up or drop off the holder.
You may report suspected misuse by completing the misuse of Blue Badge reporting form below, and sending it to:
