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)

Lorries, vans or specialist heavy vehicles (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses, minibuses and coaches (over 5 tonnes) do not need to pay the ULEZ charge. They will need to pay the LEZ charge if they do not meet the LEZ emissions standard – for more information and to check your vehicle – CLICK HERE
However, it appears London’s ULEZ has done wonders for e-Scooter rentals (05/11/2021 report can be accessed here)
