ULEZ London Scrappage Scheme - Check your eligibility

The Mayor of London has funded a £110m scrappage scheme, which provides financial assistance to help eligible London residents scrap their non-compliant vehicles to prepare for the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) across all London boroughs from 29 August 2023.

What do I get? 

All London residents can apply for up to £2,000 for scrapping a car or up to £1,000 for scrapping a motorcycle. For wheelchair accessible vehicles there is a payment of £10,000 to scrap or £6,000 to retrofit to the ULEZ standards.

Am I Eligible? 

You will need to live within one of the 32 London boroughs or the City of London to be eligible for the ULEZ car and motorcycle scrappage scheme. You can only apply for a grant payment to scrap a vehicle that does not meet the ULEZ emissions standards. The vehicle must be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to you.

How do I Apply?

The application process for the scrappage scheme is divided into two sub-schemes, based on vehicle type and applicant:

  • The ULEZ car and motorcycle scrappage scheme is for London residents with cars, motorcycles and wheelchair accessible vehicles that do not meet the ULEZ emissions standards
  • The ULEZ van and minibus scrappage scheme is for sole traders, micro businesses, small businesses or charities with a registered address in London, to scrap or retrofit a van or minibus that does not meet the ULEZ emissions standards.

The application process is online, and you will need to upload evidence to prove your identity and eligibility.

Individuals and businesses who received a grant payment under the previous TfL scrappage scheme, can’t apply to the equivalent sub-scheme again.

We have recently relaxed the criteria so that charities may apply to scrap or retrofit up to 3 vehicles even if they received a grant payment under the previous scheme.

Small businesses, micro businesses, sole traders and charities who have already received a grant payment for one vehicle under this scheme, may reapply to scrap or retrofit an additional 2 vehicles.

Each vehicle will need a separate application.
