Half price licence for the blind (severely sight impaired)

If you are registered blind (severely sight impaired) you can get a TV Licence for half of the usual cost.

To get your TV Licence for half the usual cost you have to prove that you are blind (severely sight impaired).

How to get your TV Licence

Apply online or call 0300 790 6165* and we will tell you what to do and how to pay.

If you live with someone who is blind (severely sight impaired) make sure the TV Licence is in their name. In this way you can still get the licence for half the cost.


*Calls to our 0300 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number, whether from a mobile or landline. If you get inclusive minutes with your mobile, calls to an 0300 number will be included.
