Transport for London (TfL) aims to provide an initial response to applicants within 28 days of their online application being made and is undertaking work to improve its response times.

Anyone applying for the scheme will receive an automatic response confirming receipt of their application and securing their place in a queue which will determine the amount they could receive (subject to the vehicle successfully passing a delicensing inspection).

Applicants do not need to take any further action once they have applied and received the automatic response. Their application will be processed and they will be contacted by TfL as soon as possible.
