Scotland Scrappage Scheme

Scrap your car in the Low Emission Zone Scotland

With the introduction of Low Emission Zones in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, the Scottish Government has introduced disposal grants for non-LEZ compliant vehicles. As well as the scrappage scheme offers there is a loan offer also available

Scrappage Scheme Grants

For Households

Households can apply for a £2,000 grant to incentivise the scrapping of a non-LEZ compliant vehicle. This will include an additional offer of up to two £500 mobility grants or Travel Better vouchers for people to purchase a bike, e-bike or public transport voucher.

Low Emission Zone Support Fund for households


For micro-businesses, the fund provides an incentive of a £2,500 grant per car or van to remove a non-compliant vehicle, replace it with a compliant vehicle, or to invest in an alternative mode of transport such as an e-cargo bike.

Low Emission Zone Support Fund for businesses

Used Electric Vehicle Loan

The interest-free Used Electric Vehicle Loan, funded by Transport Scotland (an agency of the Scottish Government) and administered by Energy Saving Trust, offers eligible drivers in Scotland an interest-free loan of up to £30,000 to cover the cost of purchasing a used electric car or van, or up to £5,000 for the purchase of a used electric motorcycle or moped. The loan has a repayment term of up to five years.

Scrapping your non-compliant vehicle

You must not scrap your vehicle until you have received a grant offer letter from Energy Saving Trust confirming your eligibility, otherwise you will not be eligible for funding. Both schemes are administered by the Energy Saving Trust. To find out more about scheme, to see if you’re eligible and to apply for the grants, you should visit their website.
