If you live in the Clean Air Zone
If your vehicle meets the Clean Air Zone standards, or you do not have a vehicle, you will not have to pay the charge.
The standards for the Birmingham CAZ will be the same as the London ULEZ, so you can check whether your vehicle is likely to be compliant on the Transport for London ULEZ vehicle checker. The TfL website will provide an indication of likely compliance only – the government’s definitive CAZ database will be available later in 2019.
Even if your vehicle is complaint, consider whether you could use alternatives to driving for some of your trips, to help reduce congestion and further reduce pollution.
