Hi all, This is my first post, so be easy on me:)


We've been sent a letter from tfl saying that our van does not comply to the LEZ starting 3rd jan 2012. so we were resigned to thinking that we might have to get our vehicle fitted with a filter or buy a new one (both very expensive)

But i had a look on this forum and was surprised that there seems lots of people able to change their vehicle status, either by weight or what its registered as. We have a t4 compact roof campervan that is diesel.

In our van manual it stats

unladen weight with driver 2110

permissable gross vehicle weight 2800

If it stats in manual what weight of vehicle is , is it worth get it weighed.

Can anyone advice me if there is any chance that our van can be LEZ compliant.

Thanks alot

chris

As you say there are lots of posts on here regarding how to register for LEZ exemption. In a nutshell, if your van is registered as a camper you should not have a problem as it's the gross vehicle weight which is the critical figure, according to TfL, you will need to reduce from the current 2800Kg to 2490Kg. To achieve this all you need to do is get confirmation on headed paper from a garage or company who converts vehicles (use your imagination here) to state that following the vehicle conversion the gvw has been revised to 2490Kg; send this along with the TfL registration form (on the TfL LEZ website) and a copy of the V5, off to the TfL box number in Worthing. You do not need to involve DVLA or a weighbridge or anyone offering replating services.

Good luck

Aren't they exempting all taxis from this rule? If so can you get your vans/buses registered as taxis? You'll get around the exclusion then.
