Check ULEZ compliance for your vehicle

On 25 October 2021, London's Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expanded to create a single, larger zone up to the North and South Circular Road. Use our ULEZ checker to find out if your car meets the emissions standards and what fees you may need to pay.

How does the ULEZ checker tool work?

Using data from the DVLA, our ULEZ checker tool uses your vehicle’s reg to see if your car meets the emissions standards that qualify it as low-polluting — only high-polluting vehicles are targeted by the ULEZ.
