Low Emission Zone (LEZ)

We need to reduce levels of harmful vehicle emissions in Glasgow city centre. These can cause health problems, particularly for those most vulnerable.

That's why from 1 June 2023, our Low Emission Zone (LEZ) will come into force.

All vehicles entering the city centre zone area will need to meet the less-polluting emission standards or face a penalty charge.

There are some exemptions and zone residents have extra time to comply.

Fully electric vehicles comply with LEZ requirements in Scotland.

Motorcycles and mopeds are unaffected.

Full details about Glasgow's LEZ can be found here.

You can also see if your vehicle is likely to meet LEZ emission standards by using Transport Scotland's vehicle checker.
