I just got my Blue Badge a few days ago. As I live in North Wales I simply contacted my local council by phone and they sent me the required forms to make my application by post. Given the number of questions they ask and the number of forms they require certified copies of I find it hard to believe you can apply online! Doing it that way must be a nightmare and take hours?
If you have a choice do it by post and take your time especially answering all of the questions. Above all be honest and provide lots of information along with supporting letters from your doctor,hospital consultants and physiotherapist.
It certainly worked for me. good luck with your application!
Hi Matilda, I am really sorry to hear about the problems you are having. It must be a real nightmare for you.
I suppose I am lucky being able to apply by post - I was not even aware you could apply online until I joined this forum. I just phoned my local council and they sent me the required forms to complete.
There is a lot of software that you can download for free that will allow you to reduce the size of your files. If you turn the files into PDF's this is another way you can reduce the size. However if the files must be JPEG and not PDF's you can use a really simple programme called CROPPER that is free to download and will reduce your file size.
Good luck with your application.
