Driving in Central London? New T-Charge Coming into Force in October 2017


From 23 October 2017, cars, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in central London will need to meet minimum exhaust emission standards, or pay a daily £10 Emissions Surcharge (also known as the Toxicity Charge, or T-Charge). This will be in addition to the Congestion Charge.

The £10 T-charge will work alongside the existing £11.50 congestion charge, and will affect petrol and diesel cars with pre-Euro 4 engines.  If you drive an older diesel vehicle you may also be affected by the Low Emission Zone (LEZ)

The T-Charge will operate in central London, and applies to the same area as the Congestion Charge. Find out more about the Congestion Charge and where it operates.

Hours of operation
Monday - Friday, 07:00 - 18:00
Excludes Bank Holidays and the period between Christmas Day and New Year's Day inclusive.

The Transport for London website has a vehicle checker enabling you to check easily if your vehicle is subject to this charge.
