Hanoi offers free emission evaluation on old motorbikes

Owners of motorbikes in Hanoi can get free emission evaluation on their vehicles until November 30 as part of the city's scheme to assess the emission levels of operating vehicles so as to apply solutions to improve air quality.

The scheme, starting on November 12, includes major activities such as checking emission, receiving abandoned vehicles, supporting the exchange for new motorbikes, and making a survey on impacts of the emission evaluation policy.

Owners of motorbikes that were registered for the first time before 2002 and belong to five brands of Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Piaggio, and SYM, can bring their motorbikes to eight evaluation stations in Hoan Kiem, Hai Ba Trung, Dong Da, Cau Giay, Thanh Xuan và Ha Dong districts.

If their motorbikes meet a number of requirements, including registration in Hanoi and have full parts, they will receive support of up to 4 million VND to buy to a new vehicle.

Owners of motorbikes registered before 2017 will receive free oil cans, while those that do not satisfy emission standards will receive maintenance coupons with a value of 200,000 VND at maximum./.
