 Blue Badges are issued to individual people not vehicles. This means you can use a Blue Badge both as a driver and a passenger. You can also transfer your Blue Badge to whichever vehicle you are using for a particular journey.

The Blue Badge is recognised throughout the UK and Europe.

Please visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website (Opens in a New Window) for more information on the scheme. 

You can apply online for a Blue Badge on the government's website. (Opens in a New Window)
