Bristol's Clean Air Zone (CAZ) charges and vehicle checker

Check if your vehicle will be charged and how much you'll have to pay.

Over 71% of vehicles in Bristol are already compliant and so only a minority of vehicles driving in the CAZ will be charged.

In the coming years, this percentage should increase even more as more people take advantage of the available financial support to switch to a cleaner vehicle or a different mode of transport.  

Check your vehicle

You can use the government’s compliance checking tool (GOV.UK) to check if your vehicle would be charged.

We'll implement the same scheme as Birmingham so if the checker shows a daily charge for Birmingham, you'll have to pay to drive your vehicle into Bristol’s CAZ. 

This tool is not provided by Bristol City Council and we're not responsible for the accuracy of any data provided. We recommend you recheck your vehicle before driving in any CAZ.

Bristol's CAZ will be added to the government website once confirmed.
