I'm currently thinking of getting a Tesla Model 3, but was thinking how I can get the tax fee waived with the scheme (which basically says you can scrap your old car for a new EV under certain conditions). However I don't own an old car.
I've been seeing people offering "one-for-one scheme" quotas on a Tesla group on Facebook. I contacted a car insurance agent and was told that I can qualify for the tax fee waiver without actually owning an old car, meaning that he can just find an old car owner for me. Would that mean that I'll have to buy a new car and have it registered under the old car owner's name and then have it transferred back to me? I'm curious what's the process behind this? I'm definitely a bit confused how this would work because the agent said it's perfectly legal.
Anyone have some thoughts on this?
Otherwise I can also settle for a used Tesla Model 3.
Whichever way is less troublesome given if there's not much price difference.
