  • London Low Emission zones

    From September 2020, all cars, motorcycles, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and heavy goods vehicles,  will need to meet exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards), or pay a daily charge, when travelling in central London.

    The Low Emission Zone standards are in addition to any Congestion Charge or Low Emission Zone (LEZ) charges already applied. The area covered by the ULEZ is the same as the current Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ). It will operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including weekends and public holidays.

    The ULEZ will cover the same area as the Congestion Charge zone, which is identifiable by road signs showing where it applies. There will be no barriers or toll booths. Cameras will read vehicle number plates as they are driven within the zone to check against our database.*

    The changes mostly affect diesel-engined vehicles first registered before 1 January 2002 – those with engines deemed not to meet Euro 3 emissions levels that came into force between 2001 and 2002. Some vehicles registered before this date are compliant with Euro 3, although you will have to be able to prove this to TfL to escape the charges. Larger vehicles above 3.5 tonnes GVW registered before 1 October 2006 are similarly affected. They will have to have a Euro 4 compliant engine from January. Petrol vehicles are not affected, and all vehicles first registered before 1973 are considered to be historic and are exempt.

    This means the iconic early VW camper is in the clear. Here are a few vans that wont be affected Ford Transit Custom (2013-Onwards), Vauxhall Movano, Mercedex Benz Citan, VW Transporters , Peugeot Partners, Renault Kangoo, Ivenco Daily, Vauxhall Vivaro( Facelift).
