Blue Badge Scheme Scams
BLUE BADGE WEBSITES WARNING
Disabled residents on the Island are being warned to avoid websites charging high prices for filling out blue badge applications.
The Isle of Wight Council trading standards team has received complaints from local residents who have been misled when renewing or applying for a blue badge on line.
It is not necessary to apply for a blue badge through other websites that may be charging up to £49 for an application or renewal.
Anyone wishing to renew or apply for a blue badge should use the https://www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge which is on the Gov.uk website and is free.
