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.

Even if you make a short trip inside the zone using a vehicle that doesn't meet the ULEZ emissions standards, you need to pay the £12.50 daily charge. This includes residents of the ULEZ. However, you don't need to pay the ULEZ charge if you are parked inside the zone and don't drive.

Most vehicles need to meet the ULEZ emissions standard or 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 or coaches (over 5 tonnes) do not need to pay the ULEZ charge. They will need to pay a LEZ charge if they do not meet the LEZ emissions standard.

Non-UK registered vehicles

Owners of non-UK registered vehicles must also meet the emissions standard or pay the £12.50 daily ULEZ charge to drive inside the zone.

Our vehicle checker holds information on many vehicles registered outside the UK. If we don't hold your vehicle's details you will get the option to submit a copy of your vehicle's registration document showing the Euro standard it was manufactured to.
