Will it be necessary to pay to travel to ULEZ?
To avoid paying the fee, you must comply COME IN emission standards, which means you must meet the required Euro emission standards for your vehicle and emission type.
These standards are:
- Euro 3 for motorcycles, mopeds, tricycles and quadricycles (category L)
- Euro 4 (NOx) for petrol cars, vans, vans and other special vehicles
- Euro 6 (NOx and PM) for diesel cars, vans and other special vehicles
It is also important to know that for new cars the Euro emission standard may be specified in section D.2 of your V5C.
In addition, trucks, minibuses and special heavy vehicles over 3.5 tons, as well as buses, minibuses and city buses over 5 tons do not have to pay the toll.
But they will have to pay Low emission zone charge if they do not meet these standards.
You can also look at TfL website which allows you to enter your license plate number and can check for you.
