How to renew

You can renew in two ways.

  1. Via telephone.
  2. Via a face to face interview at the Civic Offices. 

However you renew, you or someone with power of attorney over you will need to agree to the declaration again. In addition, you will have to provide evidence depending on your circumstances. The evidence can be submitted via post, email, or a relative can bring it in.

Everyone must provide a passport sized photo taken in the last four weeks. If you cannot produce one, come to Civic Offices where we will take one for you.

Your renewal will be classed as either automatic, discretionary or cognitive. Temporary applicants who need to reapply would be given a discretionary application.

Submit the below items.

  1. A current, qualifying benefit letter dated within the last year. This can be a full PIP entitlement letter with the points section, or a DLA high rate mobility letter.
  2. Proof of address
  3. Proof of ID.

Submit the below items.

  1. Proof of address.
  2. Proof of ID.
  3. Any evidence that supports the application such as proof of services, or a consultant’s letter.

Evidence needed for cognitive renewals:

  1. Proof of higher rate of care component disability living allowance, which is dated within the last year.
  2. Proof of address.
  3. Proof of ID.
  4. Any evidence that supports the application such as a care plan.

Not all renewals will be successful. If you need more information about your individual circumstances, please contact us.

When to renew

We do not send out reminders, as the badge’s front clearly shows the expiry date. Applicants can renew up to six weeks before the end.

Return expired badges

You must return your expired badge. Failure to do so may result in your badge being withdrawn.

Please return badges to the address noted above.

Replace a lost or stolen badge

If your badge is lost or stolen, please visit or call the Customer Service Centre to reapply via the details above. If your badge has been stolen, you will need to tell us the crime reference number obtained from the police when you reported the theft. If granted, you may incur a fee of £10 for a replacement. You may also need to provide other documents if the details of your disability change.
