What is the ULEZ scrappage scheme?

Introduced in January 2023 by London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, the £110 million ULEZ scrappage scheme initially targeted individuals with specific low incomes and disability benefits. However, just days before the ULEZ zone expansion in August 2023, the scheme was extended to encompass all residents in London’s 32 Boroughs.

To qualify for the grant, residents must own a non-compliant vehicle, including cars, motorcycles, or wheelchair-accessible vehicles. The vehicle should be registered with the DVLA at the applicant’s address on or before January 30, 2022, and must possess a valid MOT, insurance, and road tax.

Is my car ULEZ compliant?

To be ULEZ compliant in the London Ultra Low Emission Zone, a vehicle must meet specific emissions standards for Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM). For instance:

  • Euro 4 for petrol cars.
  • Euro 6 for diesel cars.
  • Euro 3 for mopeds, motorcycles, motorised tricycles, and quadricycles.

Petrol cars generally registered after 2005 are compliant, while diesel cars typically registered after September 2015 are deemed compliant. However, some older vehicles may meet air pollution standards, and you can verify your vehicle’s status using the Transport for London ULEZ checker.

ULEZ scrappage grant amounts:

Residents in Greater London who own non-compliant vehicles can claim various amounts based on the type of vehicle being scrapped or retrofitted. The grant scheme operates on a first-come, first-served basis within the ULEZ Zone, offering financial incentives to qualified vehicle owners.

  • Scrap a car – £2,000
  • Scrap a car – £1,600 plus an adult-rate Annual Bus & Tram Pass.
  • Scrap a car – £1,200 plus two adult-rate Annual Bus & Tram Passes.
  • Scrap a motorcycle – £1,000
  • Scrap a motorcycle – £600 plus one adult-rate Annual Bus & Tram Pass.

Check my eligibility for ULEZ

As a commuter, determining whether a car is ULEZ compliant is best done using Transport for London’s vehicle checker.

How do you qualify for the scrappage scheme?

To qualify for the scrappage scheme, you must meet the following main requirements:

  1. Reside in a ULEZ zone and be eligible for the grant.
  2. Successfully apply, pending a Certificate of Destruction (COD) for the affected vehicle.
  3. Dispose of the affected vehicle through a registered Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), which issues a Certificate of Destruction (COD).

What is the role of an ATF in the scrappage scheme?

The role of an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) in the scrappage scheme is crucial. An ATF is a registered business handling End of Life vehicles (ELV) and issuing a Certificate of Destruction. It’s important to note that the ATF is not responsible for the scrappage scheme itself but will provide a quote for the purchase and disposal of the vehicle, issue the COD, and you will need to complete the grant application.
