Exceptions to ULEZ fine?
There are a few groups of people who are exempt from the fines where some can pay a reduced amount.
Some local residents and vehicle owners in a “disabled” tax bracket will be able to apply for discounts and temporary grace periods.
Blue badge holders will still have to pay the fee if their vehicle falls outside the ULEZ emission standards.
London-licensed taxis up to the age of 15 are exempt. Minicabs with wheelchair access have a grace period until October 26, 2025, provided they are used to make a private rental booking.
Some specialized farm vehicles, tanks and excavators may also be exempt, as may certain showman vehicles.
If you ride the minibus for a charity or school – except private schools – you can sign up for a limited grace period until October 29, 2023.
