Certain vehicles either have to meet emissions standards or pay a daily charge, which is currently £200 for lorries, large vans and buses. There are penalties if you fail to do this. However, holding a Reduced Pollution Certificate or Low Emissions Certificate means you won’t have to pay the daily charge.
So if you’re planning to take a horsebox or lorry into the London LEZ it’s best to check the Transport for London site (opens in new window).
You’ll find all the information you need on which vehicles are affected, and information on how to get a certificate of compliance. The site also includes updates on daily charges for taking vehicles into London, and there’s a handy registration checker to see if your vehicle meets LEZ emission standards.
