Check ULEZ compliance for free

    London’s ULEZ operates city-wide up to the M25. Use our ULEZ checker to find out if your car meets emissions standards and what fees you may need to pay.

    How does the ULEZ checker tool work?

    Using data from the DVLA and emissions standards published by TfL, our ULEZ checker tool uses your vehicle’s reg to check if your car meets the Euro emissions standards that qualify it as low-polluting.  We can then confirm if your vehicle is compliant or non-compliant. Only non-compliant vehicles need to pay daily charges to drive in the ULEZ.

    The compliance results are based on the ULEZ standards published by TfL, but we do not guarantee their accuracy. To check compliance for older vehicles, we advise you to use the TfL vehicle checker on the TfL website.

    Some vehicles are exempt from ULEZ charges and may not receive an accurate compliance result from our checker. These include some vehicles built before 1 January 1973, or with historic tax class, some specialist vehicles (including tractors, mowers, farm and construction machinery), and those operated by the Ministry of Defence.
