TfL's taxi delicensing scheme was launched to support taxi drivers who want to delicense their Euro 3, 4 or 5 vehicles.
We are not accepting any new applications at this time. We are reviewing existing applications to confirm whether people are still interested in delicensing their vehicle.
There are currently only a limited number of £6,000 grants remaining.
If you are the owner of a diesel taxi that is less than 11 years old you may be able to surrender your taxi vehicle licence and plate in exchange for a payment from TfL. Once a taxi vehicle licence has been surrendered and the vehicle delicensed it cannot be licensed in London again.
Check whether you are eligible for the scheme under these Terms and Conditions.
Following the launch of a new Enhanced Taxi Delicensing Scheme on 15 January 2019, the original delicensing scheme (anyone who applied before 2019) has been discontinued.
We kindly ask that you do not chase for a response as we will be in touch with you.
Please note, the scheme is only available to Hackney Carriages; Private Hire Vehicles are not eligible for this scheme.
Following a public consultation changes were introduced to taxi vehicle age limits and exemptions. These changes were introduced to reduce harmful emissions from taxis and improve air quality in the capital.
Visit our Emission Standards for Taxis page for more information about how this may affect you. For a copy of the consultation or reports contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
