Blue Badge Scheme

Blue Badge Scheme

Driving licences expire when the driver is 70 and then renewed every three years. The GP can advise when a driver may have to or should consider not renewing their licence. The City of York Council direct older drivers to the ROSPA webpage for advice.

Blue Badge Scheme

Blue parking badges allow parking concessions for cars carrying people who have a permanent disability. They are also issued to those who are applying for a Blue Badge on behalf of a child under the age of three, who, because of specific medical conditions, needs to travel with bulky medical equipment, needs to return to the vehicle for treatment or to reach a doctor or hospital quickly or is in a cast due to hip dysplasia.

The Blue Badge Scheme is run by the Department of Transport, but badges are issued by City of York Council.

You can find out if you are eligible for a Blue Badge on the GOV.UK website
