ULEZ scrappage scheme

Low income and disabled Londoners can swap their older motorcycles for ULEZ-compliant machines with the extension of the capital’s vehicle scrappage allowance scheme. Qualifying riders can claim £1000 to scrap a motorcycle.

The £23 million programme was initially launched to help micro businesses, sole traders and charities wanting to scrap older vans.

The MCIA welcomed the news. “The role of Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) and other Powered Light Vehicles (PLVs) in reducing transport congestion and subsequent air pollution cannot be overstated, as their small physical footprint and low or zero emissions help counter the effect of single-occupancy cars and lightly laden vans on our cities.

“We are therefore pleased to see that following our input, PLVs are included in the Mayor of London’s ULEZ Scrappage Scheme.”

News of the extension came a day after government announced its plans to roll-out green number plates for pure electric vehicle (EV).
