No,the expiry date is on the Blue Badge,you need to apply about a month before expiry.

Many thanks to you both.
No. The idea is that you keep an eye on the date and apply to your local council a few weeks before in order for the new badge to be dispatched in a timely manner.
The renewal date is on the badge.
I went on line and filled in a form, paid the fee and all ok.
Yes mine expires April 2nd, I got reminder in January, I renewed immediately and got it back within 3 weeks. I'm in Kent, probably differs a lot where you live

It depends upon which council area you're in.

Kent County Council stopped issuing reminders but then changed their minds:

Norfolk County Council state: "Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you apply for your new badge when your current one nears expiry. We do not send reminder letters"

Durham County Council says: "Blue Badges are not automatically renewed; you will receive a renewal reminder 12 weeks
prior to the expiry of your current badge"

In Powys the policy is thus: "We also do not send out reminder letters, as the expiry date is shown clearly on the badge"

Bournemouth has stopped issuing reminders:

In Leicestershire though: "We will send you a reminder letter and an application form 6 weeks before your badge is due to expire"
