Vehicles in traffic

Used vehicle checker

We're working with The Real Urban Emissions (TRUE) Initiative to develop an emissions checker for older used vehicles. The Used Vehicle Checker - which should be ready in 2018 - will show the average real-world NOx emissions of different Euro 3, 4 and 5 models being driven on London’s roads.

From Autumn 2017 we will be working with the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) to carry out road-side emissions testing around London. The data collected will feed into the ratings on the Used Vehicle Checker.

The Used Vehicle Checker will use TRUE's ‘traffic light’ ratings system, with ratings ranging from green for cars and vans that emit the least amount of NOx in the real world to red for those that emit the most. This tool will help people who want to buy older second-hand vehicles by telling them how well a vehicle performs over its lifetime.

Our Environment Newsletter will include upates on the Used Vehicle Checker. Sign up below.
