Yes, if you are still eligible to receive DLA, then you can resume receiving your DLA payment.
OP, Your aunt was never removed from her DLA payment, it was simply that her payment was diverted to Motability, rather than being paid directly to her.
At the end of her agreement (I think 3 months before), she can ask for a price to purchase the vehicle. She can then buy it - either paying outright, or I believe she can ask about using her DLA payment to pay a motability hire-purchase agreement, or she could take out a loan from any other source to buy it. Another family member or friend could purchase the vehicle from Motability if they wanted it.
At the end of my last contract my husband purchased the car. The price we were quoted by Motability was very fair we felt. OK it wasn't rock bottom, but given that we had known the car from new, it had been main-dealer serviced from new, we knew that it had been well treated, and it came with a years MOT and a year's warranty, a price of just under £6k for a three year-old 1.6 auto estate with 17k on the clock seemed like a good deal.
I started a new contract on another car, when we get to the end of this one we might do the same again.
