can anyone please help . i took all the paper to post office for my road tax. i was told the letter from the dwp was not the right one.
i rang the dwp they sent me out the letter i thought i needed. yet again the post office said it was not correct . to be fair it was the same letter as before  just a new one .

    Contained at the very back of the five or six sheets of paper is a a sheet, losey called a certificate of rights to have free Road Fund Tax, applicable only if you have 12 points plus for mobility.

    The paper informing you that you are entitled to claim free road tax which also gives you a refund back to your award start date will be enclosed with your award letter if you where awarded the enhanced mobility part of PIP 12 points.  If you where awarded the lower rate of PIP 8 points you can claim 50% discount off road tax but this has to be claimed from the DVLA direct ring them for more information and they will inform you on what papers to send.

    Also remember that it must be only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. That means the vehicle can’t be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.
