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

If you have a two-colour severely disabled person's ID card with certain marks on it, you can use this application to apply for a supplement and a token.

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

In order to be able to use free transport on local public transport, you must purchase a token for half a year or a whole year against payment of a deductible. The deductible does not apply if certain marks 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 marks, there is the possibility to take advantage of both the reduction of the vehicle tax and free transport on public transport with the supplement with a token.

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