From the 29th of August 2023, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expanded across all London boroughs. If your vehicle fails to meet the stringent emission requirements, you'll be required to pay a daily charge of £12.50 to drive within this zone.

The Mayor of London has funded a £160m scrappage scheme, which provides financial assistance to help eligible London residents scrap vehicles that don't meet the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) emissions standards. The zone expanded across all London boroughs on 29 August 2023.
Any London resident living in one of the 32 London boroughs or the City of London with an eligible vehicle can apply to scrap a car or motorcycle, as you no longer need to receive certain benefits to 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.
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.
