ULEZ: New pollution charge begins in London

on Mon, 08/04/2019 - 4:05pm

The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) has come into force in central London.

Drivers of older, more polluting vehicles will now be charged to enter the congestion zone area at any time. The new ULEZ charge is in addition to the Congestion Charge.

Most vehicles which are not compliant will have to pay £12.50 for entering the area each day. The area will grow to include most of the Greater London area in 2021.

Vehicles should be checked using TfL's online checker (click) but broadly speaking, those which are non-compliant are:

  • Motorbikes that do not meet Euro 3 standards (pre-2007 vehicles)
  • Petrol cars and vans that do not meet Euro 4 standards (vehicles pre-2006)
  • Diesel cars and vans that do not meet Euro 6 standards (vehicles pre-2015)
  • Buses, coaches and lorries will need to meet or exceed the Euro 6 standards or pay £100 a day
