Uncertain about tribunal

Bippit Member Posts: 6 Listener
Hi all,
I have had a MR turned down but have retained the standard daily living and mobility. My mobility is difficult and I am in chronic pain permanently.  I can drive but not when I am in a lot of pain but the assessor has said that as it takes strength in upper and lower limbs to operate a car and I didn't supply any medical reports, they are leaving it as it is. 
I live on top of a hill in quite a rural area and can't walk up or down the hill to the bus stop even with walking sticks and am too unsteady to climb on and off buses, neither can I afford the cost of taxis to appointments etc., I have just missed the deadline of 28 days to apply for a tribunal but my question is can I apply before I get a medical report from my doctor or does that information have to be sent with the application? 
Could anyone give me some advice please.
Thanking you in advance.
