Ultra Low Emission Zones, or ULEZs, are designated areas where only the cleanest vehicles are allowed to drive. The goal of ULEZs is to improve air quality by reducing emissions from vehicles.

To drive in a ULEZ, a vehicle must meet certain emissions standards. For example, in London, ULEZ standards require vehicles to meet Euro 4 emissions standards (mostly pre-2006 models) and Euro 6 standards for diesel vehicle (mostly pre-2017 models). By expanding London’s ULEZ it is estimated it will take off 20,000 to 40,000 vehicles off the road.

If a vehicle does not meet the ULEZ standards, the driver may be subject to a fine. In London, for example, the fine is £12.50 per day, in addition to the daily congestion charge (£15).

The expansion of London's ULEZ covers all London boroughs towards the North Circular Road A406 and South Circular Road (A205) boundary. The expansion means our Orpington, Enfield, Ruislip and Romford dealerships are now within the zone.

Most vehicles, including cars and vans, need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or their drivers must pay a daily charge to drive within the zone:

  • £12.50 for most vehicle types, including cars, motorcycles and vans (up to and including 3.5 tonnes)
  • £100 for heavier vehicles, including lorries (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses/coaches (over 5 tonnes)
