Showman's Vehicles

Showman’s vehicles that do not meet the emissions standards and would be subject to a charge can access a local exemption. In order to apply for this exemption you will need to provide the below information:

  • Your Showman’s Guild number or Association of Circus Proprietor's membership number
  • The V5C of each vehicle you require an exemption for which shows the vehicle classification (usually on the inside page)
  • A photo of each vehicle you want to exempt

Please note that only vehicles with a 'Showmans' or 'Special vehicle' tax classification will be eligible for exemption from Clean Air Zone charging

Please email this information to the Clean Air Zone team marked for the attention of the ‘Exemptions team’. We will check the documents and contact you to either request more information or confirm that your exemption has been approved.
