How do I display my blue badge correctly?

Disabled Blue BadgeThe badge should be displayed on the dashboard of your vehicle with the front side containing the expiry date, issuing authority and wheelchair symbol clearly visible to the Enforcement Officers.

The associated time clock only needs to be displayed when you are parking on yellow lines or in a blue badge parking bay that has a time limit.

In both cases, you should set the time of arrival on the clock and display it next to your badge on the dashboard.

IMPORTANT Please check that your badge has not expired and that you park in a marked bay.
