Since the U.K. is no longer part of the EU the Blue Badges issued in the U.K. are no longer recognised in the EU.

However, Blue Badges issued in the EU ARE valid in the U.K.

If you can explain how such a crazy dichotomy has arisen, other than “we forgot”, please explain.

I have not heard of any U.K. BB holder encountering difficulties but……

Here in France the old card badges are no longer recognised as there has been a great deal of fraudulent manufacture and use. The new ones, and therefore the only acceptable ones in France, are credit card sized.

I did show mine to a Traffic Warden in Romsey in December 2019 ( the last time we were there) she took a photo as she had never seen one before and wanted to show her colleagues.

I also have a “Priorite” card to use in supermarkets where at the marked till, I am permitted to ask to be served next, irrespective of the length of the queue etc., that does NOT always make one popular, but I have never been refused.

I don’t think such a card exists in the U.K.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I see no reason why when you finally have exhausted yourself jumping through all the hoops, and they issue a badge there should be two types, temporary and permanent, and there should along with the normal sized ones, a credit card sized one to have on your person to show that you are actually registered and can go to the front of the queue anywhere not just supermarkets, and maybe have an ad on TV every few hours to inform the thickos who don't see what the difference is between a disabled space, mother and child or an ordinary space.

Seems weird, my own doc can see from my records that I’m currently getting treatment such as guided injections for my hip issues and that my arthritis has been getting worse and badly affecting my mobility.

it's because some will have been too friendly with their patients and just signed it off, or maybe due to harassment, it makes sense, just a PITA to go to an unfamiliar surgery.
