Depending if I get reassessed after 2015, I might not order another car on the scheme in 2015 due to the uncertainty.
    How have you estimated this timescale? Do you have some inside info?

    No inside info, just a hunch. My surname ends with 't', so I hope I am near the bottom of the list. I could be wrong, I may end up being first on the list, who knows?

    Apparantly once PIP is introduced, we will lose our Motability car if we are hospitalized for more than 28 days. Unlike DLA which continues to be paid until the end of our lease, with PIP it automatically stops after 28 days. ouch!

    Still not sure how that is going to work. Who will tell them you are in Hospital?

    length of stay in hospital

    I know 28 days in hospital doesn't sound long - but it is!

    Having had major neuro surgery in my teens I was still out of hospital in under four weeks. And as Walkman said who would volunteer to tell motability if you knew you would be still fit to drive when you came out. A disabled friend of mine handed back his keys to motability after two crashes and ended up in hospital. He'd black out behind the wheel - I think you get a gut feeling when it's time to use ring and ride!
