Scrappage is coming
The Government's scrappage scheme – which was announced in April's Budget – starts today.

The scrappage scheme gives buyers a £2000 incentive towards a new car if they scrap their current vehicle - providing it's over 10 years old.

The cash incentive is split 50/50 between the Government and car makers. Although it's a voluntary scheme, most major manufacturers have confirmed that they will support it.

We've put together a full guide to how scrappage works and how to make the most of it, so you can get all your questions answered by browsing the following sections:
