ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE

ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE

How will affect you?

The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be introduced to Central London this Spring and affects most vehicles including motorcycles and scooters.

In an effort to help improve air quality in London, Transport for London will launch the ULEZ from 8th April 2019, covering the same Central London area as the current Congestion Charge. Any non-compliant motorcycle or scooter venturing into this zone will be charged £12.50 per day, and failure to pay will land you a £160 fine. The ULEZ will expand into the inner London boroughs in October 2021.

To enter the ULEZ without facing a charge, your bike must meet Euro 3 emission standards. Generally speaking, bikes registered from July 2007 onwards will be compliant but there are exceptions.

You can check whether your bike meets the Euro 3 standards by following this link to TfL's online checker.

If your bike falls short of these standards then it may be time to change it for something newer, at Kent Motorcycles we have a wide range of new and used bikes that are ULEZ qualifying. Furthermore, despite the demand for non-compliant bikes falling rapidly, we'll offer a part-exchange on your bike!
