We’ve compiled everything you need to know about ULEZ, including the most frequently asked questions about the charges, how it will affect your business and what we can do to help.

With just over a month to go until the introduction of the UK’s first ever ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone), it is estimated that approximately 80% of vans currently on the UK roads will not be compliant with the standards required by the new zone.

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) which will come into effect from 8th April 2019 means that all vehicles that do not meet the exhaust emission standards will be subject to a daily charge when travelling in central London in addition to the Congestion Charge. Unlike the Congestion Charge it will operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including weekends and public holidays.

As of 8 April 2019, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will apply 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Any vehicle that does not meet emission standards will be liable to pay a daily charge to drive within the zone.

The ULEZ will operate within the same area as the current Congestion Charging Zone (CCZ) and will be in addition to the Congestion Charge and current Low Emission Zone requirements.
