I have an old car with an NCT 1/11 and it was last insured on 09/2009. The car never got sold and was not used for 17 months. Is the car still eligible for the scrappage scheme?

According to the Revenue Commissioners, in relation to scrappage in order to qualify, the car, "must have been insured for use on the road in the name of the registered owner or in the name of the spouse of the registered owner for at least 12 months in the 18 months immediately prior to the date of scrappage."
Since it is more than six months since the car was last insured then I think that you might be out of luck in this case.
