Motabity car written off and less than a year on dla award

Hi all. My son has 4 different disabilities and as such gets dla which has enabled us to have a Motability Car. This evening the car was hit by a drunk driver outside our house (insured thankfully) and is an obvious write off. The problem I foresee is as of in 2 weeks my sons dla award will have less than a year until renewal and you can only get a motability car if you have more than a year left. Would this mean we wouldn’t be entitled to another car as the insurance said the process can take up to a month. I’m panicking because the car is our lifeline and we cannot afford one without motability help. I have only been driving a year so the insurance alone would be around £2000 a year let alone the cost of buying a car etc.
Has anyone had to deal with this issue?
Thank you all in advance.

You wouldn't be a new applicant for a mobility car.
As it wasn't your fault they should provide you with a courtesy car whilst they assess yours for repair.
