Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 18 October 2021 asking for information about LEZ and ULEZ charges.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you require.

In line with the Mayors’ Air Quality and Transport Strategies, we have implemented a number of schemes discouraging the most polluting vehicles from driving in London. The schemes are just part of a package of measures designed to address London’s air quality crisis. Their primary aim is to encourage compliance and improve the health and quality of life of everyone visiting, working and living in London.
We publish details of income and expenditure in our Annual Reports and Statements of Accounts, available on our website at LEZ and ULEZ income and expenditure have been reported separately since 2019/20 and are shown on p145 of the 2020/21 Annual Report and on p124 of the 2019/20 Annual Report. Prior to 2019/20, LEZ income and expenditure was reported as part of ‘Other Income’.

Please find attached this information split between charge and enforcement income for LEZ and ULEZ.

With regards to the last question, we do not hold this information, however you could contact the DVLA in relation to this.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
