What is ULEZ?
The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will replace the T-Charge from 8 April 2019. It will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, within the same area as the current Congestion Charging Zone (CCZ).
If you drive a vehicle that doesn’t meet the ULEZ standards within the central London area and the daily charge is not paid, a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to the registered keeper. This penalty is in addition to any Congestion Charge or Low Emission Zone penalties received.
From 25 October 2021 the area will expand to the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular roads.
