    Hello @EllenG, welcome to the community!

    I will pop your post over to our Transport boards where more people with the right experiences can find it, but I just wanted to say hello and welcome you first! Hope you'll find the community friendly and welcoming!

    Do you mean your husband's PIP review isn't until October, or something else? Just so we know what you mean :)

    There are very long delays for the majority of people with reviews. He can report changes to his health condition and this will prompt them to send another form but please also note that there could be long delays for this also and some are waiting more than 1 year for a decision. 

    Is he an existing motility customer and wanting to place another oder for a vehicle? or is he wanting to place his first order?
    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.

    If his review is due in October it will be started soon, but could take up to 12 months from start to decision, and as poppy says even a change of circumstances if there is one could also take time.

    2024 Election won

    Hi he already receives Pip but due to be reviewed in October but there is no changes but for us to get a mobility car you need to have at least 12 months before your next review it’s all new to us thanks

    Yes if he’s currently not a motability cost then you need at least 12 months remaining on your award. 

    If you’re already a customer then you don’t need at least 12 months remaining as the rules changed last year. 
    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.
