    Hello and welcome,

    first don't panic, have a look here http://www.motabilityonline.co.uk/ca...FormSubmit.htm find the car you ordered and the advanced payment and weekly rental should be there for you to see, if the price differs from what you thought talk to your dealer and Motability, I sure all will be OK, any more help please ask,

    Did you haggle the price with the dealer?

    If so, then the Motability paperwork is correct as they don't know about your "deal" - the dealer will pay the difference.

    If you didn't haggle, where did you get your original AP from?

    The Car search shows that the current price for someone with War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement is £54.91 per week.
    The price for Higher Rate Mobility Component of the DLA is Total Allowance. Perhaps you got the two mixed up?

    Yep Peter is correct, I mistook your first post to be about the AP, sorry.

    The Price for DLA claimants is £Total Allowance
    and War Pensioners is £54.91

    When you ordered the vehicle you would have had to prove either having DLA or War Pensioners, so it might just be a mix up by the dealers.

    I think this must have been the WPMS rate as DLA has only just gone up to £54.05

    I have to agree with Paul, Looks like the list you were using was the War Pensioners list not the Higher rate motability compnent list.
