Won tribunal case yesterday, and current claim expires 7/11. Do I have to start the process again?

I won a tribunal case yesterday 26/01/2021 for the mobility component of DLA for my daughter.

I applied for this in December 2019 so it’s been a very long process and lots of knock backs.

Her current claim expires on 7/11/2021 for renewal as she will then be 5.

I am concerned this means I will have to start the entire process all over again after it taking over a year to finally get her entitlement.

As well as that concern, the whole fight has been to get a mobility car and you need 12 months left on the award to be able to trade in your allowance for a car.

So I’ve won the tribunal but still cannot get what we’ve been fighting for.

I am now awaiting letter from DWP, will they extend the award as it’s only just gone to tribunal or will I be expected to continue to struggle until I renew and possibly have to go through the knock backs all over again?
