Community and school transport

Community and school transport vehicles which are subject to Clean Air Zone charges can apply for a permanent exemption.

Check your vehicle

To be eligible for this exemption the vehicle must be registered as Section 19 or 22 for operation in Birmingham and not registered as a Hackney Carriage or Private Hire Vehicle. You will need to provide the Section 19/22 documentation for each vehicle you wish to exempt. One account holder can apply for multiple permits if you manage a fleet of vehicles.

It is important to note that the exemption is not automatic; if you do not register vehicles before the Clean Air Zone goes live then you will be charged to drive within the zone.

Apply for an exemption

The exemption does not apply to people visiting or attending community groups, including:

  • Community groups
  • Sports clubs
  • Places of worship
