What is ULEZ? The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) was first announced in 2014 by Boris Johnson, the then Mayor of London. It is intended to reduce air pollution by charging drivers of vehicles that don’t meet strict emissions standards and therefore encourage the use of cleaner, greener transportation.
Which areas are affected by ULEZ? ULEZ operates across all 32 London boroughs which means that the majority of the area within the M25 is included.

What is ULEZ and why was it introduced?


The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) was introduced to improve air quality and public health by lowering the production of harmful tailpipe emissions in the capital. It does so by discouraging the use of vehicles that don’t meet ULEZ emissions standards by applying a daily £12.50 charge.

Which vehicles are exempt from ULEZ?


All 100% electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles are exempt from ULEZ; many hybrid vehicles and some petrol/diesel vehicles are exempt too.

Provided a car or van features a Euro 4 (petrol) or Euro 6 (diesel) engine, it’ll be exempt from the ULEZ tariff.

How much is the ULEZ charge?


£12.50, and it’s a daily fee. For instance, if you drive a non-compliant vehicle anywhere in London for, say, five days, you’ll be required to pay £62.50.

Where and when does ULEZ operate?


It covers all 32 London boroughs, and it operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 364 days a year (it doesn’t operate on Christmas Day).
