Map of the area of London affected by the new emissions charges.
Table of charges for your car.
Actions you can take if your vehicle doesn’t pass
steps to get it ready now or face a fine.
Some of the suggested options are:-
Convert to gas
You can choose to convert your vehicle to run on pure gas with spark ignition, using an approved conversion.
If your vehicle is registered in Great Britain, you’ll need to register the conversion with the DVLA and obtain a certificate from theDriver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), formerly VOSA. Please be aware that vehicles converted to run on bio-diesel don’t meet the required emissions standards.
Fit a filter
Fitting an approved filterto your exhaust could reduce your vehicle’s emissions enough to meet the LEZ emissions standards.
If you operate a fleet of vehicles, you could re-organise it so that only vehicles meeting the emissions standards are driven within the zone.
Pay the daily charge
We would prefer that your vehicle meets LEZ standards. However, if you’re not able to take the measures needed, then you can pay the daily charge to drive within the zone.
Stage 1 The Low Emission Zone introduced 8,April 2019.
To help improve air quality across London, from 8 April 2019 if you drive any petrol or diesel vehicle including cars, motorcycles and vans within the Congestion Charge area in central London, you will need to meet new tighter emissions standards called the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) standards.
Stage 2 The Ultra Low Zone and Extension 2021
The ULEZ will initially operate in central London 24 hours a day, every day of the year, in the same area of central London area as the Congestion Charging zone. From 25 October 2021 the area will be expanded to the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular roads.
