Scotland's low emission zones

Low Emission Zones (LEZs) are being introduced in Scotland across Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow by mid-2022. LEZs help to improve air quality, protect public health and encourage people to use more public transport and cleaner vehicles.

LEZs will be enforced from mid-2023 in Glasgow and from mid-2024 in Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. They will stop the most highly polluting vehicles from entering the zone. Any vehicles entering a zone must meet minimum emission standards or will face a fine, certain exemptions will apply.

You can find out more about what’s happening, and check if your vehicle meets emission standards, on the LEZ website.
