Applying for a disabled person's bus pass

8. Learning disability (Category F)

A person is eligible for a concessionary bus pass if they have a learning disability as defined by the Transport Act 2000. The Transport Act 2000 defines learning disability as “a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social functioning”.

You will be eligible if

  • you have a learning disability which includes significant impairment of intelligence AND social functioning. This includes Downs Syndrome, some autistic spectrum disorders and some other learning disabilities.

Please note you may still qualify if your condition is so severe that you would be refused a driving licence. See the information for ‘Category G’ for more details.
