I have just bought my first MH and I wanted to know if I can still use my Blue Badge?
hi and yes u can i use mine all the time when we are in the van:thumb:
Hi and thanks for the good news! :BigGrin:
May see you parked somewhere one day! :thumb:
hope so we are going to cornwall in june for 4 weeks:BigGrin:
yes you can,its a motorvehicle under Road Traffic Act so use of blue badge is allowed provided the person who holds the badge is using vehicle or passenger.
Yes You can. And its FREE to cross the Severn Bridge into Wales
Yes you can. Is the van your only vehicle if so you can change the class and get your road tax free!
its possible to get a blue badge n free road tax on any m,vehicle being used for a disabled person .even an articulated lorry .try it its a good laugh at dvla but it works. :thumb:
Most council parking offices are pleased to help MH owners with blue badges to find somewhere appropriate for parking if they contact them in advance.
Be aware, though, that MHs are effectively precluded from using a lot of car parks purely because of their size (e.g. requirement to fit within a bay) and having the badge might not prevent issue of a penalty notice.
Thank you all!
Didn't know about the tax, so that is certainly worth looking into
All the best and happy touring!
I produce an illustrated Guide for Blue Badge users on holiday on the Continent.
It is an A4 Booklet where you select the Country you are in - on the left hand page our Guide will then tell the Police in their own language what you as a Blue Badge Holder are entitled to - and you put your Badge on the right hand page to prove your entitlement.
If you want a free copy, email me your return address and I will send you a copy (I would appreciate a small donation toward post and packaging (it requires a jiffy bag).
Disabled parking in Cornwall, the car parks we used required both the blue badge and disability tax disc to be exempt from parking charges. hope this helps
we use ours all the time, if you don't pay the tax (registered disabled) on the van.
you can use the dartford crossing free
the humber bridge free
the severn bridge free and also the forth bridge free.
you do have to apply for a card for dartford
vouchers for the humber.
and i believe you just show your badge at the others.
was parked in dover on marine drive traffic warden having a winge about the size of our van.
You can also get a pass for the M6 Toll but they want £15 admin! so we didn't bother.
The blue badge is issued to the named applicant and can be used in any vehicle providing the holder is an occupant. However generally parking fees are still payable unless the vehicle is displaying an exempt disc (not a classic disc). Exemption from road tax is available if the person is in receipt of the higher rates of disabilty benefit.
Has it got to be your only vehicle or can you claim free road tax on two vehicles being that one is only used at one time.
Surely that only applies if you qualify for DLA.
Yes your right Roger.You have to qualify for DLA to claim free Road Tax
