2019. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the
year, within the same area as the Congestion Charge zone.

Some drivers and vehicles qualify for at least a temporary discount
from the Ultra Low Emission Zone charge (ULEZ). Others are entirely
exempt. See the section
on Historic Vehicles:
You can apply
to stop paying vehicle tax if your vehicle was built more than
40 years ago. This date moves forward on a 40-year rolling system.
Assuming the rules stay the same, when the ULEZ launches in
April 2019, vehicles built before 1979 will be eligible to apply
for historic vehicle tax class.
that have a historic vehicle tax class will be exempt from the
ULEZ. This tax class excludes any vehicle used commercially
(for example, coffee vans or street food vans).
In line with
the existing LEZ discount all vehicles registered before 1 January
1973 will be exempt from the ULEZ, regardless of commercial
use or otherwise.
If your vehicle
meets the above criteria and is registered in the UK, it is
automatically exempt and you don't need to register with us.
If your vehicle meets the above criteria but is registered outside
the UK, you are also exempt, but will need to register with
us. Details on how you can register will be available closer
to the time.
