If your vehicle doesn’t meet the emission standards inside the expanded ULEZ, and isn’t exempt, you need to pay a £12.50 daily charge when entering the zone.
The charge applies to residents living within the ULEZ, however, you don’t need to pay the charge if you are parked inside the zone and don’t use the vehicle. For example, if you drive into the zone on Monday and drive out on Wednesday, but don’t use the vehicle on Tuesday, you will need to pay the charge on Monday and Wednesday.
- Cars, motorcycles, vans and specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes).
Lorries, vans or specialist heavy vehicles (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses, minibuses and coaches (over 5 tonnes) do not need to pay the ULEZ charge. They need to pay the LEZ charge if they don’t meet the LEZ emission standards.
To see if your vehicle meets the ULEZ emission standards use the Government’s vehicle checker.
