Well done! I hope it will make your life a little bit easier.
As a new user please read the booklet carefully, I know you will. The badge is for you in any car.
Us long term members of the BB group get a little upset if the badges are misused.
e.g. Car in disabled space, badge showing, disabled person sitting in car, able bodied person running into shop.
Check car park boards, some are free for BB. Some and hospitals are only free if you’re in a disabled space.
A blue badge is used as evidence for an essential companion ticket. You pay, your companion doesn’t. You usually apply for a card or register with the venue for cinemas and theatres.
Companion tickets apply to thousands of places. Look up places on the internet under accessibility. I took a copy of my card and wrote on it. ‘COPY AS ORIGINAL NEEDED AS PROOF OF DISABILITY’
Some toll roads don’t charge you but think you have to apply for a permit.
You’ve just got a pass to a whole new world, enjoy it!
