Birmingham’s Vehicle Scrappage Scheme

Scrappage Scheme Comparison

Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone Vehicle Scrappage and Travel Credit Scheme rewards eligible people working in the city's Clean Air Zone, and who earn less than £30,000 per annum, with the option of scrapping a vehicle that would otherwise be subject to the daily fee. The scheme has up to £10m in rewards available and offers you a £2,000 grant to be used on a ‘travel credit’ or to purchase a vehicle that meets the emission standards of the Clean Air Zone.

Before scrapping your vehicle you should first check the criteria and apply through the TfL website, await confirmation that you're eligible for the scheme, then you can scrap your vehicle.
