What is Changing? 

From Monday 23 October, there is a £10 daily fee for those who drive more polluting vehicles in the congestion charging zone, on top of the existing £11.50 congestion charge.

Vehicles that do not comply with the Euro IV exhaust standard must pay the £10 charge.

The standard defines emissions limits for cars, vans, buses, coaches and lorries. Most vehicles registered before 2006 are likely to exceed these limits.

The zone will operate between 07:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday.

You can find out if your car is affected with TfL’s T-Charge checker.
