Blue Badge pilot scheme

Some people with a diagnosed behavioural, or cognitive impairment, may be eligible for a Blue Badge.


Applicants need to demonstrate eligibility by providing confirmation that they have been diagnosed with a mental disorder. Check eligibility.

Evidence is needed that applicants are in receipt of these benefits:

  • the higher or middle rate of the care component of the Disability Living Allowance
  • the higher or lower rate of Attendance Allowance
  • the Personal Independence Payment - specifically that the individual has been awarded a total of at least 8 points across sections 7, 8 and 9.

A healthcare professional, or social worker, who knows the applicant, must complete a questionnaire to confirm that the applicant lacks awareness of danger from traffic and is likely to compromise their safety, or the safety of others, as a result.


The application process is separate to the standard Blue Badge application process.
