I agree with Frank, be careful.

The DVLA have massive powers. They are quite capable and willing to just revoke your driving license. They are not bothered if you are not aware this has happened and will allow you to just drive around illegal

If they catch you on camera, fine you and you do not pay or defend yourself, even if you are not aware then maybe revoking your license in your absence is a step they will take

Certainly be careful.

One of the problems of driving around without being LEZ compliant whether you are aware of it or not, is that I would not trust an insurance company to cover you in the event of an accident. You know what they are like - any reason not to cover would be taken by them.

It's one thing to risk being uninsured if it only affects yourself, it's quite another where other people are concerned

If your vehicle doesnt show under the registration you have to do it by vehicle type

So try this one

FIAT Hymer LEZ compliance

It looks like the costs for compliant filters are beginning to fall - there are now some being developed for lower mileage non fleet vehicle such as motorhomes - apparently there is one due from Clean Diesel technologies at about £1400 + £300ish for fitting +VAT and more info on http://www.tomsettkent.com/lowemmiss...motorhomes.htm

That´s the way to do it!

Burstner Elegance i821 Fiat Ducato 2.8jtd 2006 LEZ 2012

I don't know if we will ever be travelling into London but there seems a lot of conflicting information around. I am new to motorhomes.

I understood that if the vehicle was Euro 3 it would be compliant for 2012.

Is this the case? I would also like to understand if we would be compliant in Germany which we may visit.

I understand the M25 is exempt from LEZ?

Any help appreciated.

Brian

Today's Guardian ran a full page about the problems of campervans inside the LEZ.

First time I've seen a national paper mention it.

Here is a link to the online version >LEZ Guardian<

What they have done is to change the goal posts and its more on weight as well so please check you M/Home.

We are fighting still very hard in the back ground as we have found a loophole so please still watch this

https://www.motorhomefacts.com/ftopic...html+residents

We have so many London residents in the LEZ in the MCC and CCC and MHFacts we have fought so long and hard for them The fine is so out of order.
Boris did listen to me and did put it off for 2 years where he said that he would allow more time for people to get the Filter or exchange their M/Homes but please now check. Jan 2012 is the date but we will keep fighting

The M25 is not in the LEZ where it does cross in Essex etc it is exempt xx

Ah, WEIGHT, that explains some of it. My Burstner is registered as Private HGV 5 tonne.

So it gets hit on weight, not because it has an engine that fails the test.

As you say, seems unfair. Is there any logic behind that decision?

Probably not I guess......
