If your vehicle is not CAZ compliant, you currently drive to a place of work in the CAZ area, and you earn less than £30,000 a year, we are not planning to charge you to drive in the CAZ until 2021, one year after the CAZ is introduced.
This will not be an automatic exemption, you will need to supply evidence that your usual place of work is within the CAZ, you currently drive to work and that your total gross annual salary is less than £30,000. We will only exempt one vehicle per applicant.
We expect the process for applying for an exemption to the CAZ charge to be open in early 2020.
If your application is successful, it will apply to all trips made by the exempt vehicle in the CAZ, not just journeys to work.
