Only you can use your Blue Badge.

You are responsible for it.

Make sure it is displayed properly so it can be seen.


You must never give the badge to friends or family to allow them to do something on your behalf, such as shopping or collecting something for you.                          

The badge must only be displayed if you are travelling in the vehicle as a driver or passenger, or if someone is collecting you or dropping you off and needs to park at your destination      

 It is illegal to use your badge after its expiry date.

You may be fined up to £1000 or lose your badge if you don’t stick to the law.

The badge remains the property of the Isle of Wight Council. They can ask for the badge to be returned if it is being misused.
