London Ultra Low Emission Zone

To help clean up London's air, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, except Christmas Day (25 December). The zone now covers all areas within the North and South Circular Roads. The North Circular (A406) and South Circular (A205) roads are not in the zone.

Most vehicles need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or you must pay a £12.50 daily charge to drive inside the zone. This includes:

  • Cars, motorcycles, vans and specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)
  • Residents of the Congestion Charge area (the 100% discount of the daily ULEZ charge has ended).
