Blue Badge Scheme
 
Disabled person's parking permit (Blue Badge Scheme)        

The Blue Badge Scheme provides parking concessions nationally and across Europe for people with a permanent and substantial disability, whether that person is the driver or a passenger.

The holder of a Blue Badge is permitted to park in areas normally subject to restrictions to assist them to access healthcare, shops and other facilities.

Full details of eligibility criteria are included in the application form.

Further information can be found at the Blue Badge Scotland website.

Transport Scotland launched a pilot scheme on 01 April 2016 that extends the eligibility criteria for the Blue Badge scheme to people with a diagnosed mental disorder and/or cognitive impairment. For details, please see Blue Badge Scheme - Pilot - Extension to Eligibility or contact us on 01324 504750.
