“The reason you are subject to the T-Charge is because your vehicle does not meet the Euro 4 / IV standard” -TFL

My 57 plate 08MY (so early in the model year) TDV8 is ok, according to the checker.

Looks like the checker, or rather some database behind it, is screwy.


So when I checked it the first time, it was by using the reg number. (I’ve just tried it again to make sure I’m not doing something wrong). So just tried it by “Check by vehicle type” and I get:

You said your vehicle is:
Car
Registered on or after 1 January 2008

You are not subject to the T-Charge
You do not need to take any action
Your vehicle meets at least the Euro 4 standard
You may still be subject to the Congestion Charge
You may still be affected by the tighter emissions standard of the forthcoming Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). To see if you are affected visit the ULEZ vehicle checker


So, as they presumably plan to charge you based on reg number, I’ll be Censored even though it says I’m ok.

On the full documentation it's has a funny way of putting it: "Charges will be carried out from your vehicle registration number plate, 08 and onwards on not chargeable unless the vehicle is listed on the list of vehicles that have to pay due to emissions output level" So as you say having a 57 plate but registered 2008 or 2008 model year won't make you exempt for some reason. Just appeal each time as not surely correct in Law, but watch out if over 210g emissions even if Euro 4, as they will get you that way. All speed cameras etc will have facility to take your details for emissions as well as the special cameras and congestion cameras. Whistle Big Cry John

How right you are IRBails.

To be fair, I live about 60 miles from London so personally I am very unlikely to drive into the centre (use the train). I would drive to the O2 Arena on occasions but am pretty sure that is outside the zone.

My issue is that these people are running our capital city and are doing it badly. Just symptomatic of the incompetence of our politicians. I suppose if you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Robin

The weird thing is that my '73 classic car (Stag) is exempted from the T charge. Go figure. MY2016 HSE D SDV6

Just checked what an Abbot self-propelled gun would be. It's exempt.

Very Happy

Thank you for using the T-Charge checker. Your vehicle is subject to the T-Charge but not chargeable.

You do not have to pay the T-Charge for one of the following reasons:

Don’t bother with vin number etc, if you just enter it as a car, first registered after 2008 (one of the options), then it tells you you’re OK

I checked mine with reg number and got "not charged". Screwy system, methinks. 2012 SDV6

The TDV8 attained Euro 4 air quality standard at launch, so for the moment, it is an exempt car.

My daughter is riding at the International horse show at Olympia in December- we were advised to use a trailer to get the pony to Olympia due to the LEZ charges for horse lorries. £200 a day!!
Anyway thought I’d check on TFL website and surprisingly my 1994 L reg Ford Iveco 4 litre diesel lorry is free to take into central London Thumbs Up Not sure how my horse lorry doesn’t spew enough emissions to warrant a stealth tax?? I’ll be taking a trailer anyway as I don’t fancy navigating central London in a 7.5t lorry
