Hi, I’m really worried. I needed to get onto a bus today and only had a £10 note. I offered this to the bus driver, they can accept notes for fares. He told me that there was no change and that I could get on for free this time. Could I be prosecuted for fare evasion? I’m really anxious about this. If prosecuted would I get a criminal offence?

No.
It isn't evasion if he's offered the fare for free.

I've had a similar thing happen to me before too. The driver offered my fare to be free for that day (didn't explain why though, I was baffled too) but nothing came of it.

Nah, drivers generally have a bit of discretion in that area. Unless you were challenged by another staff member and found to be without a ticket I fail to see how there could be any possible action against you.
