Classic Cars – T Charge Emissions Surcharge – update

Back in a blog post in July 2016 we told you about the proposed new emissions surcharge for tax exempt classic cars for central London.

As from Autumn 2017 tax exempt classic cars will not have to pay the £10 London Emissions Surcharge otherwise known as  the ‘Toxicity Charge’ or ‘T Charge’, drivers of non-compliant cars will have to find the extra funds – billed Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm from October 23rd 2017. Charging will not take place on Bank Holidays or during the festive period from Christmas Day to New Year’s day,

In a decision which has been welcomed by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) vehicles taxed as ‘historic’ under rolling 40 year Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) will only pay the Congestion Charge which is £11.50 (for cars)  to enter Central London.

Owners of so called ‘modern classics’ will be hit by the Emissions Surcharge. Any car built before 2005 (Euro 4) emissions standard will be liable for the standard Central London Congestion Charge (£11.50 for cars) plus the new T Charge (£10).

To see the full T Charge/Emissions Surcharge Data go to the Transport for London (TfL) website
