Provide information for Blue Badge users and the public, including how to check your eligibility and apply for your Blue Badge, either through your local council or online via the Blue Badge Scotland website.
The Blue Badge scheme is for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems. The scheme provides a range of on-street parking concessions enabling Blue Badge holders to park closer to where they need to go. The scheme does not apply to off-street car parking, for example in privately operated car parks at supermarkets or airports. The scheme operates throughout the UK and, in Scotland, is managed by local authorities who deal with applications and issue badges. You must apply for a Blue Badge to the Scottish local authority in which you are resident.
