Check your vehicle

This tool helps you to work out whether your vehicle meets the ULEZ emission standards. Any vehicle that meets the ULEZ standard will be able to travel in the zone without paying the ULEZ charge.

Before you start

Weight, category and first registration of your vehicle

Your vehicle registration certificate (V5C) will tell you the weight, category and date of first registration of your vehicle.

If you do not have your V5C, the date of first registration and vehicle weight can be found at vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk

Euro emission standards

For newer vehicles, the Euro emission standard may be listed on the V5C in section D.2. If your vehicle meets the required Euro emission standard, it will be compliant with ULEZ.

The ULEZ standard is:

  • Euro 3 for motorcycles
  • Euro 4 for petrol cars, vans and minibuses
  • Euro 6 for diesel cars, vans and minibuses
  • Euro VI for lorries, buses and coaches

Please contact your vehicle manufacturer if you think that your vehicle met the required Euro emission standard before the mandatory emission standards came into effect.

Low Emission Zone (LEZ) compliance

This tool does not check LEZ compliance. The emission standards for the ULEZ are different from the Low Emission Zone. If you drive a lorry, bus, coach, minibus or larger van, you must ensure that you meet both. Emission standards for the Low Emission Zone can be found at tfl.gov.uk/lez.
