Is my vehicle affected by ULEZ?
The best way to check whether or not your car leasing hire is exempt from the ULEZ charge is to enter its registration number (number plate) into the ULEZ vehicle checker at the Transport for London website. This tool will tell you if your vehicle is affected by ULEZ.
How do you pay the ULEZ charge?
If you need to pay ULEZ charges, charging days run from midnight to midnight, every day of the year (except Christmas Day). So if you drive within the ULEZ, you'll have to pay by midnight on the third day following the journey, and if you fail to pay on time, you risk getting a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
You can pay the ULEZ charges online, Auto Pay, and on the Transport For London Pay to drive in London. When paying your ULEZ charge online, make sure you don't pay through unofficial websites, which may mislead you.
