Will Your Vehicle Comply with Glasgow's LEZ?

Glasgow's city centre LEZ is being phased in to give everyone the chance to prepare.

  • Phase 1 was introduced on 31 December 2018 and applies to local service buses
  • Phase 2 which will apply to all vehicles, was expected to commence on 31 December 2022 however given the new indicative timescales for LEZs in Scotland arising from the national COVID-19 response, this phase will be moved out to 2023 - with a more detailed timetable for enforcement to be published as soon as possible.

Glasgow's LEZ is expected to adopt the following emission standards:

  • Euro 4 for petrol cars, vans, minibuses and other specialist vehicles
  • Euro 6 for diesel cars, vans and minibuses and other specialist vehicles
  • Euro VI for lorries, buses and coaches and other specialist heavy diesel engine vehicles

Motorcycles, mopeds, motorised tricycles and quadricycles are likely to be scoped out of LEZ schemes across Scotland.

Vehicle Checker

Transport Scotland are working on an online tool that will enable motorists to check if their vehicle meets LEZ emission standards by entering their registration number. Until this is ready, they have prepared a basic online vehicle checker.

Whilst the results are not a guarantee or proof that a vehicle can enter a LEZ, they can give an indication meantime. There is also the option to check a vehicle's emission standard by consulting its log book or enquiring directly with the manufacturer.

As soon as the registration checking tool is available, a weblink will be added to this page.
