How do I apply or renew?

Applying online

Please note

Before you apply online, you will need to have the following ready. Documents need to be in a digital format that can be uploaded onto the application form. You can use a scanner or take a photo of a document with a smartphone.

Renewal applications take approximately 4 weeks to process and new applications may take up to 8 weeks to process.

1. Proof of address

This is a document from within the last 12 months with the applicant's name and address. For example:

  • a council tax bill
  • or a utility bill
  • or a driving licence

2. Proof of identity

This is an identity document for the applicant. For example:

  • a birth or marriage certificate
  • or passport
  • or driving licence

3. A digital passport-style photo

This is required if you don’t have a bus pass.

4. Evidence documents

To give evidence that you meet the criteria you are applying under. For example:

  • or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) entitlement letter
  • or War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement entitlement letter
  • or award letter from the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme
  • or Certificate of Visual Impairment

Please note: If you do not have any of the above, you can still apply. You may need an assessment for eligibility instead.
