The Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a new online service to help road users check if they will be charged for entering a clean air zone.

With an increasing number of cities proposing or bringing in clean air or zero emission zones in a bid to improve air quality, as the BMF has previously reported, it is likely that road users will wish to find out if where they are travelling will see them incur a charge.

All you will need to use the new service is the registration number of your vehicle, providing it is registered within the UK, and it can be found here. At present, only Birmingham and Leeds are covered by the checker. 

A statement by the DfT said: “Tackling high pollution levels is a serious challenge for communities across the UK which is why the government is providing financial and expert support to local authorities to help them clean up their air.”
