Request a Blue Badge to replace one that’s been lost, stolen or damaged. You can request it for yourself or someone else.

A replacement badge is valid until the expiry date of the original badge. There is no charge for replacement badges if the original has been stolen or is faded. 

If your badge is due to expire in less than 3 months, you need to re apply instead.

Request a replacement online

To replace the Blue Badge you’ll need:

  • your personal details
  • your National Insurance number, if you have one
  • the existing badge number, if you know it

If the badge has been stolen you will also need a crime reference number

If a badge is report lost or stolen

Once a badge is reported lost or stolen:

  • it will be cancelled immediately
  • you won't be able to use it
  • a replacement will be issued

Using a badge after it's been cancelled is seen as a misuse of the system and a breach of the Blue Badge rules.

If your badge is found after you have reported it lost or stolen, you won't be able to use it.

It should be returned to the Mobility team. No refund will be issued. 

If you no longer need a badge

If you don’t need your badge anymore it should be returned to the Mobility team. No refund will be issued.
