Blue Badge Renewal

Today as I was leaving a pub in town with the kids in tow, I noticed that my son’s blue badge is due to run out two months from now. My first question is how do I renew it for him? Who do I contact? Any suggestions will be appreciated as well this is my first time renewing. Do I simply dial a number or send a email? How long does it take? I mean the entire process of renewing it.

    The no for blue badge renewal is: 0343 100 100.

    Or you can renew on line and fill in their form. 
    They may need a new photo of your son. Also proof that he's entiteled yo use a bluebadge. And the fee 

    There shouldn't be any.problems

    You won’t get a reminder to renew your blue badge. If your son qualifies automatically for a blue badge he will get a replacement other may need a reassessment as a lot of councils have differences in how they-award badges.

    Online is the quickest and easiest way to renew. If he automatically qualifies you'll need to send the evidence and payment needs to be made before they send the badge out to you. It can take a few weeks so don't leave it to the last minute to do it.

    I gave them a call today. Unfortunately they can’t answer my question. So instead I’m going to try emailing them later this week.

    "They can't answer your question?

    How did you word it?
    Did they say you need a new photo for your son?
    Did they say send the fee?
    Did they ask for proof? 
    Are they posting a form  to you?

    Let’s take your questions one by one. 
    1- I asked them for a form to be sent to my apartment. 
    2- I had very little time to ask questions as I was at work when I made the call. It was a brief call as I only had five minutes. It was lunch time and I was making a sandwich for the kids to eat.  
    3- My plan is to email back tomorrow with some new questions that are unanswered. 
    4-They didn’t ask for proof. I’ll send them some evidence anyway in case.

    You can apply to your local council for a Blue Badge. Each have their own assessment and criteria
