The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) came into effect in central London on 8 April 2019. Within the first month of its operation, the average compliance rate of vehicles entering the zone was around 71 per cent during Congestion Charge hours. New figures released by Transport for London (TfL) show that, on average, 17,400 non-compliant vehicles paid the ULEZ charge every day in April.

Any vehicle that meets the ULEZ standards is able to travel in the zone without paying the ULEZ charge. The ULEZ operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, covering the same area as the current Congestion Charge Zone.

You can check your vehicle requirements, charges and exemptions on the TfL ‘Check your vehicle‘ tool.
