Disabled Persons Freedom Pass
The statutory impairments which make someone eligible for a disabled persons Freedom Pass are:
People who are blind or partially sighted
People who are profoundly or severely deaf
People without speech
Disabled people, or those who have suffered an injury, which has left them with a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to walk
People who do not have arms or have a long-term loss of the use of both arms
People who have a learning difficulty that is defined as 'a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social functioning'
People who, if they applied for the grant of a licence to drive a motor vehicle under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1988, would have their application refused pursuant to section 92 of the Act (physical fitness) otherwise than on the ground of persistent misuse of drugs or alcohol.
London boroughs may, at their discretion under exceptional circumstances, issue Freedom Passes to disabled people that do not meet one of the statutory eligibility criteria.
If you believe you fulfil the eligible criteria and are entitled to a Disabled Persons Freedom Pass you need to contact your borough for an application form.
You will be asked to provide evidence of your eligibility and a colour passport sized photograph. Once your borough has assessed and confirmed your eligibility your Freedom Pass will go into production and will be posted to you by second class post.
