The London Low Emission Zone
The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) affects all of London. Trucks that enter the zone must meet a minimum emissions standard or pay a daily charge otherwise they will face a heavy fine.
Be warned – European transport companies must register their vehicles with the scheme in advance even if they already meet the emissions standards.
The current penalty for a truck entering the Low Emission Zone without registering or paying the daily charge is £1,000. From 26 October 2020 this will increase to £2,000 for vehicles not meeting Euro IV emissions standards. As a result if you ignore the fines and do nothing, your vehicles can be seized in the UK.
The London Ultra Low Emission Zone [ULEZ] covers a smaller area in the centre of the city. Trucks that enter the ULEZ must be Euro VI compliant.
