I was told I'm not entitled to DLA. I am appealing the decision as they wouldnt contact my consultant and as he got me a Blue Badge I am hoping he will push them too.

This all really worries me.

I applied for DLA 7 years ago and got turned down. Was told I'd not been disabled long enough! I just accepted it and did not appeal even although I had had mobility issues since early '90s.

April '12 I lost the proper use of my left ARM and hand together with the worsening of my walking. So I decided to try DLA again. I had a DLA doctor visit my home in June and was awarded it in July. Overjoyed I started to look into the Motobility scheme. I need a high up automatic car. Which I ordered in August but is still not here!
My big worry now is.... Motobility is a contract to lease for 3 years, granted as long as you have been awarded higher rate mobility DLA for at least 12 months.

Looking at the small print.... if I fail my renewal... I am still contractually obliged to pay the lease agreement.

I will be up for renewal in April 2014, I may have only had the car for 12 months! If they bump me off high rate mobility I have no idea how I am going to afford to keep the car... and I can't afford a legal battle to break the contract!

I don't even have it yet and I am already regretting signing up for it.

Is anyone else in this situation? And have you read the small print in the Motobility scheme contract?Scary stuff.....

I have been refused DLA. This is not a renewal, But I would Like your opinion. I applied for DLA last April. 2 weeks later I got a letter back saying I was refused, so I put an appeal in. Throughout this time I kept submitting extra evidence. Eventually I went to a Tribunal, nearly a year later.(on my own, not wisest move, my mother came with me for support). I was refused again, as they said I could walk. I was totally ripped apart in the tribunal, I came out in tears. They don't seem to have taken into account that I am in pain all the time, I walk slow and have to keep stopping. I have applied to the judge for the written particulars, nothing back yet and I only have 10 days to ask for an extention. Do they do this on purpose. Also I found out PIPs came into force the week before my tribunal, which I think had more of a bearing on the decision. Also I was never asked to go for a medical. Why? I have an appointment with citizens advice on Monday. Wish me luck.

AJAY71, Unless the mobility scheme has recently changed its criteria (within last 7 days)I understand that you are not contractually obliged to keep on with the contract should you fail to gain the equivalent of HRC with DLA.
Should a person fail to get a renewal of thier allowance they should contact Mobility /or their dealer and arrange to send car back. You will then get back pro rata any pre payment you might have made for the car.

Good luck.
