Exemptions

Mobility Exemption Pass (MEP)

If you are disabled or an organisation which transports disabled persons you may be entitled to a toll exemption for your vehicle when using the M6toll.

The MEP allows free passage of the *nominated vehicle on the M6toll only.  If you think you may be eligible for an MEP, you must apply to Midland Expressway Limited as no other evidence of disability (eg Blue Badge) can be accepted. 
*(the nominated vehicle is the one exempt from Road Tax)

To qualify for exemption you must be on a higher rate of disability living allowance and be road tax exempt.

For a vehicle to be exempt from payment using an MEP, the disabled person must be in the vehicle identified on the MEP.  At our mainline plazas, please use the Attended Lane where your MEP pass will be checked by a member of our staff; at our ramp plazas, please press the call for assistance button and your MEP pass will be checked via CCTV.

To apply for a MEP pass, please complete the application form (which includes further details and Terms & Conditions). 

To speak to us about MEPs, please call 0330 660 0790 (select Option 2)
