    @chelsea92; hello and welcome, contact your mobility dealer who took the car back you may be able to continue with the same car or you may have to start a new three year term.

    Great  news on the Tribunal win. You will need to wait for the DLA award to be put into payment and for the award letter to arrive. Once you have that then you'll most likely have to visit another dealer to place an order for a new car, providing of course that there's at least 12 months remaining on the award.
