    Hi Wolvesmad,

    There is a descriptor called "Planning and following journeys" which is part of the mobility component where you may score sufficient points to get an award of PIP. To score the points the descriptor needs to be satisfied for more than 50% of the time. The only way to find out is by making a claim, you should do so asap by calling 0800 917 2222 to request a claim form.
