    Hi jacko88

    It may be that you qualify automatically if you receive at least a standard rate PIP mobility award based on the physical criteria. This would be any of descriptors c, d, e or f under the moving around activity on page 35 of the Disability Rights UK factsheet here. If you don't (it's not clear whether you are currently getting DLA or PIP) you may still qualify but it will be more difficult to evidence. The Citizen's Advice website has a useful page on this and rather then me repeating it all here i suggest you have a look using the link here.

    I hope this helps.
