The zone currently covers all areas within the North and South Circular Roads, however, the North Circular (A406) and South Circular (A205) roads are not within the zone. You can check to see if an area is within the zone by using the Government's postcode finder.If you're driving a vehicle that doesn't meet the ULEZ emissions standards, you will need to pay the £12.50 daily charge. This includes residents of the ULEZ zones.
As of the 29th August 2023, the Ultra Low Emission Zone in London will be expanding across all London boroughs. This expansion is happening to help clear the city's air and improve health amongst residents in the capital.
If your vehicle doesn't meet the emissions standards and you need to drive within the ULEZ, including the expanded area from 29th August 2023, you could face a daily charge of £12.50.
