What is that ULEZ?

The ULEZ is an area in which buses, cars, coaches, HGVs, minibuses, motorcycles and vans will have to abide by specific exhaust emission standards.

What will the ULEZ Cover?

The ULEZ will operate within the same area of the city’s current Congestion Charging Zone.

Here is a map of it:

  • A Diesel engine car, minibus or van which is of Euro-6 ULEZ standards
  • A petrol engine car, minibus or van which is of Euro-4 emissions standard.
  • A motorcycle, moped or a similar vehicle which is of Euro-3 emissions standard.
  • An HGV, bus or coach which is of Euro-6 ULEZ emissions standard.

How much will you pay?

If your vehicle fails to meet the ULEZ standards, you will need to pay the following standard daily charge (subject to change before the scheme actually begins:

  • £12.50 per day for a diesel or petrol car, minibus or van.
  • £12.50 per day for a motorcycle, moped or a similar vehicle.
  • £100 per day for an HGV, bus or coach.

Penalties that you may get:

In case you fail to comply with the ULEZ charge payments:

  • £130 penalty for a diesel or petrol car, minibus or van, which will be reduced to £65 if payment is made within 14 days of issue.
  • A £130 penalty for a motorcycle, moped or a similar vehicle, which will be reduced to £65 if payment is made within 14 days of issue.
  • A £1,000 penalty for an HGV, bus or coach, which will be reduced to £500 if payment is made within 14 days of issue.
