ULEZ Scrappage scheme for London announced

Published:  31 January, 2023

Garages in and around London could soon customers’ older vehicles disappear from the roads with the announcement of a £110 million scrappage scheme designed to tie in with the expansion of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in August.

The ULEZ is set to expand across all London boroughs from 29 August 2023, and those driving non-compliant vehicles will need to pay £12.50 to use roads within the zone. The scrappage scheme is intended to encourage drivers or operators to scrap or retrofit vehicles that do not meet the ULEZ standards.

There are two schemes running co-currently. The ULEZ car and motorcycle scrappage scheme is open to those on certain low income or disability benefits. £2,000 is available for scrapping a car, with £1,000 on offer for scrapping a motorcycle. For wheelchair accessible vehicles, £5,000 is being proffered to encourage owners to scrap or retrofit to the ULEZ standard. Meanwhile, the ULEZ van and minibus scheme caters for businesses with up to 10 employees, sole traders and charities with a registered address in London. The grant payment here is£5,000 - £9,500.

Only applicants with vehicles that do not meet the ULEZ emissions standard will qualify for our new scrappage scheme. Those who benefitted from the previous TfL scrappage scheme will not be able to apply.
