I went catastrophically downhill only a week ago, and have had to surrender my driving licence.
So, since I now have a medical document describing my difficulties in detail, I applied for a Blue Badge, which was approved the next working day.
The Blue Badge person (at my local council) advised that I should apply for PIP too, since I had to have 8 points to get the badge, which is the threshold for PIP, and so I’m highly likely to qualify.
I thought I’d record the process here, in case it is helpful to others, or if I need help myself.
I don’t use the phone (due to other disabilities) so the first step is to write a letter to ask for an application form.
