It doesn’t come in until October 2010 for vans and even then it will only be for vehicles that don’t meet Euro III standards. So unless you’re running vans over 8 years old there won’t be a problem.

    They’re not doing it to raise money Drew. The penalties are deliberately set at high levels so that no-one in their right mind would chance being caught out by them. They’re trying to make it more financially viable to update your 7 year old vehicle than it would be to keep the vehicle and pay the charge.

    He’s responsible for the whole of Greater London Billy. I can’t see that this will make any difference at all to most transport operators. How many of us run 7 year old trucks or 8 year old vans anyway?

    On the plus side – if you’re driving a foreign registered vehicle you’ve got to pay the penalty even if it’s LEZ compliant unless you register it with TfL two weeks before you enter the LEZ.
