List: Pre-Euro 3 motorcycles with ULEZ exemptions

The table below is a list of the pre-Euro 3 (2007) motorcycles that we know have gained an exemption from the London ULEZ charge.

Transport for London’s ULEZ scheme exempts motorcycles that produce fewer than 0.15 g/Km of NOx emissions. All Euro 3 compliant motorcycles are exempt. Older motorcycles have to apply for an exemption.

There are a number of ways owners of pre-Euro 3 motorcycles can do this:

Read: Using your logbook (V5C) or obtaining a Certificate of Conformity
Read: With a physical test for NOx emissions

Reduce your motorcycle insurance premium


Below is a list of the pre-Euro 3 bikes we know to have gained exemption from the daily ULEZ charge of £12.50. The oldest vehicle we are currently aware of is a 34-year-old two-stroke Yahama RD350.

The list was last updated: 20/06/2019


V5C: Motorbikes that have their NOx value of 0.15 g/Km or under given on their logbook
CoC: Motorbikes that have a Certificate of Conformity stating the NOx value is 0.15 g/Km or under
NOx test: Motorbikes that have taken an emission test that confirms the NOx value is 0.15 g/Km or under

Some small print

The list is by no means exhaustive and does not include historic taxation class vehicles (vehicle over 40 years old) which are exempted automatically from ULEZ charges*.

The year is the year of that vehicle’s registration, not the manufacturer’s model year.

Any stated NOx reading is for the individual bike tested. Some bikes have initially failed the NOx test but then, with tuning, have subsequently passed. You should accept that your older bike might not pass even though a similar model and year has. This data is provided for information purposes only and should not be taken as a guarantee that your own vehicle might be exempt.

If a brand is not represented on the list it is because we are not currently aware of any of its models gaining exemption from the ULEZ charge.

The data in the list has been compiled from a number of sources including data submitted by Biker & Bike readers, social media posts and owner’s forums.

Add your ULEZ exempted motorcycle to the list

If you have gained exemption for a motorcycle that is not on the list please let us know by sending an email to editorial @ (removing the spaces either side of the @), using the subject line: ULEZ exempt motorcycle. Please tell us:

The model
The year of registration
The method (Certificate of Conformity, V5C [logbook] or NOx test)
The measured NOx reading, if known

*You must ensure you have applied to DVLA for historic vehicle status for the exemption to apply.
