    Ring them on Monday.

    Also when you get the PIP2 form put a note on that asking them to use the DLA evidence.
    You could also include all the DLA evidence with the PIP form with a note explaining why older evidence has been included.
    I'm assuming the condition will not improve, so previous DLA evidence remains relevant.

    Don't rely on them to look at DLA evidence, and definitely don't expect them to. They don't usually. Treat the PIP application as if it's the first time you've been involved with the DWP. Fill in the form fully, and send as much relevant evidence as you can.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.
