    I'm not aware of there being any discounts because of LCWRA. If you're claiming PIP you maybe entitled to a disabled bus pass but it will depend on the criteria of your local Authority. Some LA's do not take a PIP award into consideration but you can still take a look to see if you may qualify anyway. https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-disabled-bus-pass

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I’m not saying this applies to you because I know nothing about your health conditions but one way of qualifying for a disabled person bus pass if your medical conditions means that you would be disqualified from driving (it doesn’t matter whether or not you know how to drive). I have found that although the NHS may tell people that they need to tell DVLC about they health condition they don’t tell they could qualify for a bus pass.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
