You may have automatic entitlement - this would be if you have high rate mobility DLA or scored enough points in the mobility element of PIP.

If you do not have automatic qualification you would have to apply to your local authority and might have to undergo a mobility assessment from them.

From my own experience, my local council were very helpful, you just have to explain how your condition affects you and provide supporting evidence from a GP otherwise you may have an assessment.

I have Fibromyalgia, and needed to get a letter from my GP stating this and it's effects, they kept my application on hold while I waited for my letter and I scanned and emailed it, not much after that I received my Blue Badge. They were also informed I applied for PIP but got rejected and I was MR the decision.

Hope this helps.

If you scored 8 points or more for the PIP Moving Around activity then you have automatic entitlement to a Blue Badge, if not then you can apply directly to your Local Authority, your PIP and ESA awards may help with this.

It's not the Blue Badge that entitles you to a discount of your Vehicle Tax, it's your PIP Mobility award. See
