Ultra Low Emission Zone
ULEZ is coming
To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London from 8 April 2019. Most vehicles including cars and vans will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the area of the ULEZ.
From 25 October 2021, the ULEZ area will be expanded to include the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular Roads.
Vehicle and postcode checks are available here.
