London ULEZ Coming 8 April 2019

28th November 2018

Transport for London have released a guide and a reminder that the Ultra Low Emission Zone will be enforced in London from 8 April 2019. 

ULEZ will affect everyone who drives a fossil fuel powered vehicle in London from next year. TfL have released a guide to this new zone, which explains everything you'll need to know about it. 

In brief, the Ultra Low Emission Zone will cover Central London from 24 hours a day, every day of the year. 

ULEZ Standards:
To comply with the ULEZ standards, a vehicle must meet the following emissions standards. These vary according to vehicle and fuel type:
– Euro 3 for motorcycles, mopeds, motorised tricycles and quadricycles
– Euro 4 for petrol cars, vans, minibuses, and other specialist vehicles
– Euro 6 for diesel cars, vans, minibuses, and other specialist vehicles
– Euro VI for lorries, buses, coaches, and other specialist heavy vehicles

ULEZ Charges: 
From 8 April 2019, if a vehicle does not meet the ULEZ standard the driver will need to pay the following charge:
– £12.50 per day for vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes 
– £100 per day for heavy goods vehicles greater than 3.5 tonnes, and buses and coaches of more than 5 tonnes

This will be on top of the congestion charge, where it applies.
