How to display the badge

  • You must display the badge on top of the dashboard or facia panel of a vehicle with the front of the badge facing forward so that the expiry date is legible from outside of the vehicle when using the parking benefits. If the vehicle does not have a dashboard or facia panel you must exhibit the badge in a conspicuous position so that the relevant details are legible from outside the vehicle when using the parking benefits.
  • The badge should only be displayed when using the parking benefits under the Scheme, except if 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 badge holder (see 'Penalties for misuse').
  • Similar badges given to organisations caring for disabled people must not be used by non-disabled members for their own benefit. These badges must not be on display except when the vehicle is being used for the benefit of disabled people.
  • Badges last for three years only. When you need a new one apply to the issuing authority (the Council's Area Management Department for residents of Redcar & Cleveland) for reassessment at least four weeks before the badge expires. More details
  • You must return the badge to the issuing authority if you no longer need it.
