United Kingdom

United Kingdom

The United Kingdom (UK) has adopted the European Model Parking Card.


Parking spaces

 

Those reserved for a Parking Card holder are marked with the wheelchair symbol.

 

Do not park if the space is marked with someone's name or a licence plate number.

 

Where you may use your Parking Card

 

UK Parking Card holder

You may use your Parking Card in most EU / EEA member states, and in some other countries around the world.

 

Look at the entry for the country you intend visiting to see if your Parking Card can be used.

 

Visitor to the UK

Visitor from another EU / EEA member state – you may use your Parking Card in the UK.

 

Visitor from outside the EU / EEA – Using your Parking Card is entirely at the discretion of the police and local authority of the area you are visiting. The UK Government’s advice is to bring your Parking Card with you and check locally with the police or local authority to see if it can be used. Do not park without this official approval

 

Parking disc – The UK Parking Card is used in conjunction with a parking disc, but a visitor from another country who display their Parking Card without a parking disc will be given the same concessions.

 

Parking on roads

 

London

Your Parking Card may not be used in Central London - for more information go to http://disabledmotoring.org/blue-badge/blue-badge-in-london  

Your Parking Card may be used elsewhere in London.

 

England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

You may park on a road where parking is prohibited (marked by a single or double yellow line), but only if you do not cause an obstruction or danger.

 

 

Parking in car parks

 

Some car parks allow a vehicle displaying the Parking Card to park free-of-charge - check the car park notices or ask an attendant.

Visitor to United Kingdom from another EU/EEA member state ONLY – print and display this notice next to your Parking Card
