    Hello, you post that you score about 8 is this on a self test or the result of an PIP assessment??? If you score 8 then apply via your local issuing authority who will be best to contact for advice on if you meet the criteria.

    Yes different transport authorities have different criteria, so you need to contact them, unless you can say which area you live in then someone on here may know.

    Check the criteria of your local council here. I remember you're claiming PIP but a PIP award doesn't automatically entitle you to a bus pass and neither does ESA support group.

    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.
