Answer for ULEZ

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposals for ULEZ are still being developed. Stakeholder feedback is helping to shape a final proposal for public consultation in late 2014.  At this point we will specify which vehicles will be required to meet proposed emission standards. You will be pleased to note that an outright ban on vehicles is not an option that is currently being considered.

TfL is currently considering which exemptions should apply to the ULEZ and it is too early to state what will or won't be exempted. TfL is very unlikely to prevent events like the London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally taking place. Currently all VED exempt vehicles (vehicles registered prior to 1974) are excluded from London's Low Emission Zone.
