Low emission zone

Get LEZ Compliant

Going the extra mile by lowering emissions...

In 2008 the city of London implemented its Low Emission Zone (LEZ) program to improve air quality by targeting poor emission levels from older vehicles. From 3rd January 2012 the required emissions standards are raised to Euro 4 for PM (particulate matter) for trucks over 3.5t and buses & coaches with more than 8 seats over 5t. This will affect all vehicles which operate inside the London Low Emission Zone and means that all Euro 2 & 3 emissions trucks over 3.5t and buses & coaches over 5t, registered before 1st October 2006, will have to be upgraded to meet the tougher emissions standards.
