PIP for son

edited February 2018 in PIP, DLA and AA
My son has bilateral sacroiliac and scoliosis with a conective tissue disorder and suffers with diarrhoea as he is on a high dose of movacol laxative. Does anyone know if he is eligibal for PIP as he can't sit on normal chairs and has to have his tail bone manipulated by a chiropraction once to twice a week. He also has to use the toilet frequantly.  I also want to know if he can get his driving license done on an automatic car due to his pain.

    Hi @Poosey, and welcome! Have you tried taking the B&W self-test to see whether your son may be eligible for PIP?

    As far as I know, there are no restrictions on who can learn to drive using an automatic car, so I'd have a look for instructors near you who can offer lessons in an automatic car and enquire with them. Hope this helps!

    It's nice to finally find a place that I can ask specific questions.
