Environmental zone London LEZ- Great Britain

The environmental zone of London LEZ entered into force on 04.02.2008. It covers most of the Greater London area. All streets in the Greater London area are included.

Further information can be obtained by clicking on the map on the left. Please refer to the table below to find out which driving restrictions apply to which types of vehicle at which times of the day and week in the environmental zone or use or Green-Zones app.

The REG-Certificate for English environmental zones

In the London (LEZ + ULEZ) environmental zones, many vehicle types are required to register and pay fees before entering a zone in order to avoid heavy fines.

As registration is complex and time-consuming, Green-Zones will offer a corresponding service for various vehicle types from autumn 2019 and will issue a Green-Zones REG-Certificate for the registered vehicle. Further information will soon be available here.
The registration certificate (REG-Certificate) for European environmental zones developed by Green Zones confirms to the buyer that Green-Zones has registered his vehicle for an environmental zone in Great Britain as required by law. The registration certificate is not an official badge/vignette.
