Scrappage scheme for vans and minibuses


The new scrappage scheme allows businesses with up to 50 employees and charities to scrap up to three older, more polluting vans and charity minibuses which do not meet the new ultra low emission zone (ULEZ) standards and switch to new cleaner vehicles.

Find out if your vehicle meets the current emissions standards required for the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and/or the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) or if you need to pay a daily charge:

There are 3 different options for the scrappage scheme:


Option 1: Scrappage for frequent users of the Congestion Charge area (£7,000)

The vehicle being scrapped must:

  • Have been driven within the Congestion Charge zone at least 26 times between 22 August 2018 and 22 February 2019 (six months before the start of the scrappage scheme). This will be checked against existing transactions in your London Road User Charging account.
  • For journeys made outside of Congestion Charge operational hours (07:00-18:00, Monday to Friday) we will consider evidence of travel.
  • Be a pre-Euro 6 diesel light van (or charity-owned minibus) that doesn't meet the ULEZ standards.

Option 2: Scrappage and purchase/lease of Euro 6 replacement (£7,000)

The vehicle being scrapped must be:

  • A pre-Euro 6 diesel light van (or charity-owned minibus) that doesn't meet the ULEZ standards.
  • Replaced by purchase, lease or hire (for at least two years) with a Euro 6 diesel light van or Euro 6 diesel minibus (for charities only).

The eligible business must be registered at a Greater London address.

Option 3: Scrappage and contribution towards running costs (including insurance) of an electric vehicle (£9,500)

The grant payment is made up of £7,000 for scrapping ULEZ non- compliant vehicles plus a £2,500 contribution towards running costs (including insurance) of a replacement electric vehicle(s).

The vehicle being scrapped must be:

  • A pre-Euro 6 diesel light van (or charity-owned minibus) that does not meet the ULEZ standards.
  • Replaced by purchase, lease or hire (for at least two years ) with an electric light van or electric minibus (for charities only).

For an eligible business not registered in Greater London the vehicle must also:

  • Have been driven within the Congestion Charge zone at least 26 times between 22 August 2018 and 22 February 2019 (six months before the start of the scrappage scheme). This will be checked against existing transactions in your London Road User Charging account.
