If you're not aware, from early April the London Congestion Charge Zone area will now also become the Ultra Low Emission Zone but this ULEZ operates 24/7 365.
So everyone entering the congestion charge zone on a vehicle that is not exempt, will now also have to pay £12.50 a day... on top of the congestion charge (if applicable).
This small central zone will expand to everything within the North and South Circular come 2021!!
This is the TfL vehicle checker and rules so you can find out if your bike/car are exempt from the ULEZ: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ult...m-checker-ulez
All vehicles need to produce less than 0.15g/km of NOx emissions to be classed as exempt, otherwise you have to pay.
Pre-Euro 3 category bikes do not list this emission on the vehicle V5, so will automatically be liable to pay the fine. However if you contact your manufacturer for a Certificate of Conformity, this CoC will show the manufacturer recorded NOx level. Thankfully Honda do this for free (others charge).
You'll be unsurprised to find out that the CBR600RR is of course actually well below this pollution emission level, in fact it's only 0.093g/km - so anyone who rides their 600RR into the city and pays for the ULEZ is throwing money away.
Just email: [email protected]
with your name, address and photos of your V5, and Honda will post you this Certificate in a couple of days.
With this CoC you then have to contact TfL to get your bike registered as exempt from the ULEZ!
I believe each biker has to do this individually. Just because I've registered my 2004 CBR 600RR as exempt, I don't think that means that all of the same model will be made exempt! Thieving scum!
