Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.
Here is full advice on disabled tax disks from the Gov UK web site:
https://www.gov.uk/financial-help-disabled/vehicles-and-transport
Please note the following general guidance which I have extracted:
'Vehicle tax exemption
Eligibility
You can apply for exemption from paying vehicle tax if you get the:
Higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
Enhanced rate mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement
The vehicle must be registered in the disabled person’s name or their nominated driver’s name. It must only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. It can’t be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.
How to claim
You claim the exemption when you apply for vehicle tax.
You can do this online, by phone, by post or at a Post Office that deals with vehicle tax.
You’ll need:
Your exemption certificate serial number
The surname, date of birth and National Insurance number of the exemption certificate holder
Your exemption certificate must be one of the following:
Certificate of entitlement for DLA
Statement of entitlement for PIP
Annual certificate of entitlement
DLA404
MHS330
WPA0442
You must claim at a Post Office that deals with vehicle tax if you’re claiming for a particular vehicle for the first time. You can’t do it online or by phone.'
I do hope I have covered your position with my answer. If there is anything you do not understand please do not hesitate to ask a follow up question as I may have slightly misunderstood the tenor of your question.
