    Hi @PAUL1967
    I have had to edit a lot of your post as it contained a lot of personal information, please be aware that this is a public community of disabled people, parents, carers and professionals who offer eachother support, but it can be read by anyone so it is important not to share your address and personal details.

    Im sorry to hear you are having such a tough time, do you have anyone to support you?

    If you hold s full driving licence then you will not get a free pass.
    it is for people who for medical reasons can not have a licence

    We have this video about preparing for a PIP assessment that may help



    And there is a guide to filling in your PIP forms from the CAB that is very useful.

    This is not true. People who scored at least 8 points in the moving around part of mobility PIP and have a driving license can still have a free bus pass. I have a driving license, claim Enhanced mobility but i have a free bus pass.

    The rules are different depending on the local council.
    where I live you can not have a bus pass if you hold a driving licence or able to drive even if you don’t.
    and neither  pip or any other benefit are taken into consideration.
    they contact your GP and they confirm whether your condition affects your ability to hold a driving licence.
