The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has confirmed plans to introduce a new £10 T-Charge for all vehicles entering the London Congestion Charge zone — on top of the existing £11.50 fee — for all vehicles with pre-Euro 4 emissions standards.
This age cut-off means that most cars registered after 2005 will escape the charge, but the many pre-2005 vehicles – including all classic Fords regardless of historic status – will be subject to the new charge from next year. As it stands, historic vehicles are currently exempt from the Ultra Low Emissions Zone restrictions, however no such allowance will be made for the T-Charge.
This means that if you want to drive your classic into Congestion Charge zone on Monday to Friday between 7 am and 6 pm, the total cost will be £21.50 per day.
To find out if your car is liable for the T-Charge, use Transport for London’s T-Charge checker.
