Scrappage will go ahead as planned next Monday after the government answered the car makers' list of 50 concerns over the implementation of the scheme.
Following the announcement last month that the UK would get scrappage, the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) called an urgent meeting with ministers to thrash out the finer details of the scheme.
Concerns centered on how dealers and manufacturers would process the influx of old cars.
But the SMMT told Autocar today it was satisfied with the government’s answers and is confident scrappage can be implemented successfully.
Tomorrow is the deadline for car makers to sign up if they want to be part of the scheme from its start next Monday, although they can join at a later date with a month’s notice.
The SMMT has confirmed there will be a cap on cars taking three months or more to be delivered. It was argued that this would restrict a number of cars, such as the Ford Focus RS, from the scheme.
