Applying for the Car Scappage Scheme

There is no formal way of applying for the scrappage scheme, instead the car owner simply needs to ensure their current car complies with the eligibility criteria and agrees to it being scrapped in exchange for 2,000.

The owner will need to provide proof of identity, V5C registration documents and the MOT certificate for the old car. The car dealership for the new vehicle will do the rest; they will arrange the scrappage of the old vehicle and reward the consumer with a 2,000 discount off the price of a new car.

The last requirement of the scheme is that the consumer must agree to be contacted by the Department of Business and Regulatory Reform who are in charge of monitoring the success of the new scheme.
