bessbearbessbear Member Posts: 4 Listener
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 .

    It's not the PIP award you need. In with the decision letter is a separate certificate that states your entitlement to the free road tax, it's this you need and not the PIP award.

    You're only entitled to the free road tax if you have Enhanced mobility. If you have standard mobility then you're only entitled to the 50% reduction.

    This is true hubby only got the standard and is still entitled to the 50% reduction but there doesn't seem to be a  form one can send off for to get this and no question to answer on any other one or the link above  to say you have the standard rate.

    This is because the only way to claim the 50% reduction to send all of your documents, including your PIP award letter to DVLA. See link on how to claim this.
