Do I move to area then apply for a new one, or just give details of my Scottish one, and does my Scottish one stop working fast after I move etc or is it still valid till expiry date?

    You will need to reapply in your new area rather than just giving details of the old pass. Check the requirements as they differ; I lived in one place that wanted you to send a GP letter dated within 3 months and another that wanted the GP to fill in a specific form. Contact the council for that area and ask what to do. Or ask in a local library. My local library processes applications and will even take your photo for free. The council website should have a list of libraries that do this.

    Your old pass will continue to work but you should really stop using it once you have the new one.
  • You need to re apply a scotish pass is not valid in England And vice versa
