My husbands blue badge runs out soon. He is a nursing home permanently although on occasions I do take him out in the car. Should I reapply for renewal or is it now not possible to renew it?

I renewed John's, and then returned it when he passed. It was better to have it, just in case, than wish I had one. xxx

If you're taking him out sometimes then you definitely need to renew it Billy's Girl.

Hi. In the past I have read on here that some were able to use the homes blue badge when they took their partner out. It might be worth checking if you could do this.

Personally I would apply for another blue badge
