Thank you so much for taking the time to share that information. It's good to know. Thanks again.

MrsA, you were asking about the government scheme for getting old cars off the road. They did run several sessions - for cars over 20 years old, then those over 15 years old but those have now closed and they say they don't have the money to extend the scheme - though the Greens Party is pressurising the government to do so. (They were supposed to take it down to 12 years I believe.)

Anyway under the scheme (which we used, so were familiar with) you had to have valid road tax up to the month before scrapping. So I don't think it would be worth holding on to your vehicle 'in case' the scheme re-appears. (You'd have to pay 'back tax' between now and whenever the scheme was re-introduced, plus find somewhere to keep the vehicle in the meantime.)

However it paid a minimum of euros684 (if you didn't buy brand new car to replace it), then varying amounts according to the eco-friendliness of your new car.

You might be successful selling it for spares - or to someone who wants to use it as a 'teaching' project!

Thank you for your reply. Has this program started yet? I was under the impression it was only in the planning.

Hi there,

Try any Government office tt you register car in or change ownership etc. In Limassol it is close to the end of the beach road. There is definitely a Government plan for tt. I asked that myself.

Kind regards

Zoran
