    HI and welcome,

    I would assume that you should receive the mobility payment while you wait for the new car but to be sure you'll need to ring DWP or motability to ask 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.
