PIP and ESA assessments?

Hi everybody!
So sorry if I don't do this right... It's my first post ever but... I got awarded PIP standard daily living in September just passed after 3/4 of a year trying to prove them that I really needed the help. The thing I was going to ask was... I was on income support and now forced to come off it as my daughter is turning 5 and I only just found out I could apply for ESA instead of universal credit because I'm eligible for Severe disability premium. (Which I thought I had but apparently not! It's getting sorted out now.) 
But I'm scared about going through another assessment after PIP. It nearly tore me apart. Do I have to go through another assessment with ESA despite only getting daily living? Can they use my PIP award as evidence? 
Sorry for the wall of text!!
