The Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is an area of London where you have to pay a fee if you drive a vehicle that doesn’t meet certain emissions standards. It was introduced in 2019 with the aim of improving local air quality and is active 24 hours a day, every day, except Christmas Day. The ULEZ expanded on 29 August 2023 to include all of Greater London.
