With the expansion of London’s ULEZ, major car tax adjustments will be implemented in two weeks.
When London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expands, car tax adjustments will be implemented in two weeks, affecting millions of people.
The ULEZ is a zone that covers much of central London and requires most vehicles to fulfill emissions requirements or pay a daily fee to drive within it.
The zone is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year save Christmas Day, to help improve air quality in the capital.
A daily tax of £12.50 will be required for most vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, and trucks (up to 3.5 tonnes).
Heavier vehicles, such as lorries (above 3.5 tonnes), buses, and coaches, are subject to a daily penalty of £100.
The ULEZ will expand from central London to create a single, wider zone on October 25, 2021.
It is planned to extend up to the North Circular Road (!406) and the South Circular Road (!407), but not include them (A205).
This means that tourist-less parts of London, such as Shoreditch, Camden, and Greenwich, will be included in the extended zone.
The zone currently extends from King’s Cross Station to Vauxhall Bridge in the north, and from Hyde Park to Tower Bridge in the east.
The ULEZ, which was first implemented in 2019, is the world’s largest clean air zone, with hundreds of cities around the world following suit and implementing their own.
According to data from Transport for London (TfL), four out of every five cars meet pollution criteria.
Given that most petrol cars constructed since 2006 are almost probably Euro 4 compliant and hence unaffected by the ULEZ, the bulk of cars in London are less than 15 years old.
Those who own a diesel vehicle must guarantee that it meets Euro 6 emissions regulations.
Euro 6 was implemented in 2014, meaning vehicles produced before to that date may be in violation of the emissions requirements and may be subject to the daily fee.
Any new motorcycle sold in the United Kingdom after 2006 is nearly certain to be ULEZ-compliant.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, applauded the decision to expand the ULEZ, stating it. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
