Is this discrimination

Having  had two previous face to face PIP assessments, my recent one while reading the assessment report the assessor had wrote that because I drive a non adapted automatic car and use two mobility scooters one a boot scooter and the other one a class three for at home and dog walking off road parkland. The assessor has presumed, and  assumed that as I can use the for mentioned modes of transport that it is possible to that the claimant can preform the descriptors, activities , 1, 2,  3, 4, 6,. In both previous assessments I was driving a manual car and using the same mobility scooters. No mention of, or mention or assumptions that I should be able or it’s feasible that the claimant can preform the descriptors.

    Not discrimination at all. Just the usual combination of poor training; a lack of knowledge on current case law - see https://pipinfo.net/ - and a lack of sufficient info from yourself. They can only draw inferences where you don’t tackle the stuff up front i.e. it’s not unreasonable to conclude few issues with those activities given that you can clearly sit for periods and haven’t said why driving etc. shouldn’t indicate all is well.
