Am I eligible for a disabled person’s bus pass ?
Information from Dept of Transport website:
You’re eligible for a disabled person’s pass if you live in England and are ‘eligible disabled’. This means you:
*are profoundly or severely deaf
*are without speech
*have a disability, or have suffered an injury, which has a substantial and long-term effect on your ability to walk
*don’t have arms or have long-term loss of the use of both arms
*have a learning disability
You’re also eligible disabled if your application for a driving licence would be refused under section 92 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (physical fitness). However, you won’t be eligible if you were refused because of persistent misuse of drugs or alcohol.
To make an application, we suggest visiting your local council (often dealt with at County Council level) website – click here for links to find your local council website
