What is ULEZ?
Ultra Low Emission Zones, or ULEZs, are designated areas where only the cleanest vehicles are allowed to drive. The goal of ULEZs is to improve air quality by reducing emissions from vehicles.
To drive in a ULEZ, a vehicle must meet certain emissions standards. These standards are typically stricter than those required by the state or national government. For example, in London, ULEZ standards require vehicles to meet Euro 4 emissions standards (mostly pre-2006 models) and Euro 6 standards for diesel vehicle (mostly pre-2017 models). By expanding London’s ULEZ it is estimated it will take off 20,000 to 40,000 vehicles off the road.
If a vehicle does not meet the ULEZ standards, the driver may be subject to a charge. In London, for example, the charge is £12.50 per day, in addition to the congestion charge.
ULEZs have been implemented in several cities around the world, including London, Paris, Madrid, and Athens, and it is likely that more cities will implement ULEZs in the future to aid in reducing emissions and improving air quality.
London's Ultra Low Emission Zone is expanding
The expansion of London's ULEZ happens on 29th August 2023 and will cover all London boroughs towards the North Circular Road A406 and South Circular Road (A205) boundary. The expansion includes coverage of our Hendon dealership and near our Bushey Heath dealership.
Most vehicles, including cars and vans, need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or their drivers must pay a daily charge to drive within the zone:

London scrappage scheme
In addition to the expansion of the ULEZ, on April 4th 2023, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan also announced that the scrappage scheme will be widened to make it easier for Londoners to switch to cleaner vehicles. Under the new scheme, all Londoners with non-compliant vehicles will be eligible for a £2,000 grant to help them buy a new car or van that meets the ULEZ standards. More info >
