Testimonials from our Bath Clean Air Zone Customers

Available Financial Support

If your vehicle is going to be charged to enter Bristol’s Clean Air Zone, and you use it regularly, financial support will be available to help you upgrade or replace your vehicle. There are also some exemptions, including temporary ones for people waiting for their vehicle upgrade to be completed. In order to be eligible, your vehicle must be operational, roadworthy, and has a valid MOT certificate.

The financial assistance is based on a “first-come, first served” basis, so we recommend you apply as early as possible.

Please approach Bristol City Council in the first instance to discuss your eligibility.

About the Clean Air Zone

To improve air quality, some local authorities are introducing clean air zones. If your vehicle exceeds emission standards, you may have to pay a charge if you drive in a clean air zone.

Class D Clean Air Zone

Bristol City Council has introduced a Class D Clean Air Zone in a small central area of the city. Vehicles that do not meet the below minimum standards will be required to pay to enter the clean air zones.

  • Hackney carriages and private hire vehicles which are Euro 6 Diesel or Euro 4 Petrol
  • light goods vehicles (LGVS)  such as vans, campervans and pickup trucks, and minibuses which are Euro 6 Diesel or Euro 4 Petrol
  • buses and coaches which are Euro 6 Diesel
  • heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) which are Euro 6 Diesel


Vehicles that do not meet these standards will be charged:

  • Private car – £9 per day
  • Taxi – £9 per day
  • Vans – £9 per day
  • HGV’s – £100 per day
  • Busses – £100 per day
  • Coach £100 per day

Is Your Vehicle Compliant?

The easiest way to find out what Euro Standard your vehicle is to check the registration. You can do so here.

  • Euro 6 diesel cars licensed as private hire vehicles, taxis, and vans (<1,305 kg): September 2015
  • Euro 6 diesel vans (1,305 – 3,500 kg): September 2016
  • Euro 4 petrol cars, taxis, and vans (<1,305 kg): January 2006
  • Euro 4 petrol vans (1,305 – 3,500 kg): January 2007
  • Euro VI diesel HGVs, buses, and coaches: January 2014 – however many coach manufacturers had exemptions so would have started Euro VI later

If your vehicle was first registered after the relevant date it is likely you will not receive a charge for driving in the Clean Air Zone, but we recommend that you check with Bristol Council to make sure.
