    Yes it's enough. You need 12 points to get the car / enhanced PIP. (either part)

    I was given too believe that they can change the desicion even if you have the credited amount of points.it' up to the dwp,is this something that you have heard or know about?.your help is much appreciated. M

    The final decision is with the DWP but they usually agree with the report

    That's incorrect. For the mobility car it's Enhanced Mobility part (12 points) and not daily living part.

    Hi mackems1973mackems1973,

    As poppy says, you need 12 points to in the mobility activities to get a Motability vehicle. You have the 12 you need. As CR says, the DWP usually follow the assessor's report. It's possible for the DWP to change the points (they certainly have the power to do so), but it's unusual. It will also depend on medical evidence you have sent in, but the DWP usually take the assessor's report as their guideline.

    Hopefully it will all work out for you, and you'll get enhanced rates for both components, with the option to use the mobility component to lease a car if you wish.
