PIP Leaving Motability scheme

Hey so I've recently left the Motability scheme due to the advanced payments becoming overly expensive to continue  affording every few years, 

I'm just wondering once my mobility part of pip is reissued back to me, will PIP send me a letter confirming this? Also within this letter is PIP  likely to automatically include a new statement of Entitlement the specific page required for the Free disabled vehicle tax, as I know when my award was last reviewed one was not included as I was already on the Motability scheme with my car tax already being used on my scheme vehicle, 

I know looking online it says you can contact PIP and request a new one by phone, however I really struggle with speaking with them as it causes me a great deal of anxiety so I'm hoping I won't need to do that, and I'd like to hope with leaving the scheme this would be done automatically? 

Please could someone advise me on this, thank you

    PIP may send a letter to confirm that the mobility will now be paid to the claimant but i'm not 100% certain on this.

    You may not automatically be sent the certificate of entitlement and you may have to ring them for this. Do you have someone that can ring on your behalf? You will need to briefly go through security and then you can pass the phone onto them.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hey Poppy thank you for the response,

     so I could ask my mum to ring on my behalf and let her tell them what I need and then quickly speak to them to provide the security details and then just pass the phone straight back to my mum to deal with them then? 

    I've just been waiting to see and hoping I receive the letter but I guess if I don't receive one by next week I'll have to give in and ring them, I just don't cope well trying to communicate with them it just causes me alot of anxiety and destress,

    Yes you can do exactly that. Best time to ring if you can is first thing in the morning when they open at 9am.
