Apply for a supplement to the severely disabled person's ID card with or without a token


If you have a two-colour severely disabled person's ID card on which certain marks are indicated, you can apply for a supplement and a token with the help of this application.

You can use it to take advantage of either free local public transport or a reduction in motor vehicle tax.

In order to be able to use free local public transport, you must purchase a token for half a year or a whole year against payment of your own contribution. The personal contribution does not apply if certain characteristics are present or certain social benefits are received.

Alternatively, you can apply for a supplement without a token instead in order to receive a reduction in road tax.

For persons with certain markers, it is possible to take advantage of both the reduction of vehicle tax and free public transport with the supplement with token.

If your supplement is damaged or you have lost it, you can request a replacement issue.
