Pip Award and DVLA

Mandr52 Member Posts: 23 Connected
Hi everyone 
I'm new to Scope also to caring for someone disabled.
My husband has amongst other things SIAHD and neuropathy do I have to tell the dvla he cant drive anymore also he has to use a Zimmer frame to get around in the house and a wheelchair outside.

Pip assessor has decided that he can make a meal for one!
I do not know how he's expected to have two hands on his frame so he does not fall over and make a meal.
He got the upper on mobility is it worth me challenging this or should I just leave it.?

Someone told me if I challenge it he may get reduced on the mobility part ?

Also could someone please tell me what I have to do to register our car as disabled now?

Thank you
