Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ)

To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London from 8 April 2019 in the same area as the Congestion Charge.


Cars will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or be liable for a £12.50^ daily charge to drive within the ULEZ area.

This charge is in addition to any congestion charge that applies and will run from midnight to midnight, 7 days a week, every day of the year.

How much will it cost?

£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)

Discounts & Exemptions...

Residents who are registered for the residents' Congestion Charge discount will get a 100% ULEZ discount until 24 October 2021 to give them more time to change their vehicle to meet the ULEZ standards.

Residents will continue to pay the T-Charge, at a discounted rate of 90%, during this ULEZ resident sunset period.

Signs to Know..

The area covered by the ULEZ will be clearly signposted with road signs showing where it applies. There will be no barriers or toll booths. Cameras will read vehicle number plates as they are driven within the zone to check against our database to see if they meet the ULEZ emission standards.

Road signs will be in place before the ULEZ starts at every entry point along the boundary and along key arterial approaches. They will sit alongside or below existing Congestion Charge signs.

The ULEZ will operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year including weekends and public holidays. It will cover the same area as the Congestion Charging Zone until 2021.

Entry signs at every boundary point will tell you when you're in the zone

Alert signs will be in place before the ULEZ launches to show where it will operate from April 2019.

Advance information signs will appear on major roads around 0.5 miles from the boundary.


From 25 October 2021 the ULEZ boundary will be extended to create a larger zone bounded by the North and South Circular Roads. If you are driving any petrol or diesel vehicle within this enlarged area you will also need to meet new tighter emissions standards or pay a daily charge.

This daily charge is in addition to the weekday Congestion Charge if you drive in central London as well.

Vehicles using the North and South Circular Roads and not going into the ULEZ will not be charged.


Jaguar Approved Used...

Petrol: Euro 4 | Diesel: Euro 6

Cars need to meet minimum emission standards when travelling in the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) or the daily charge must be paid.

The ULEZ will be enforced based on the declared emissions of the vehicle rather than the age. However:

  • Petrol cars that meet the ULEZ standards are generally those registered with the DVLA after 2005, although cars that meet the standards have been available since 2001
  • Diesel cars that meet the standards are generally those registered with the DVLA after September 2015


Jaguar Options...

If your vehicle does not meet the required ULEZ standards there are many different alternative options such as walk, cylce, or use public transport.

However, the future is electric cars so why not take advantage of the clever technology and step into the future today...

Electric cars emit no NOx or CO2 from the tailpipe (compared to 120 g/km for the average small petrol car). The Jaguar I-PACE is a great option. Whether this is your first or next electric vehicle, discover how Jaguar I‑PACE fits seamlessly with your lifestyle.....

New cars are another great option as you can avoid the additional charges as drivers of older, more polluting petrol and diesel cars are the ones who are affected. Why not check out the latest Jaguar models we have...
