Congestion Charge contact number
The UK Congestion Charge is a fee charged to most motor vehicles who travel through a specified area of central London on weekdays between 7am and 6pm. The Congestion Charge is an effective way to ensure that people who use congested and important road space make a financial contribution to do so.
There are no physical toll booths or barriers in place, instead a camera will read your number plate and recognise whether or not you need to pay the charge. These cameras may read your number plate upon entering, leaving and driving around the Congestion Charge Zone. If you are required to pay the charge, you will receive a penalty charge notice informing you of this.
Once the congestion charge is paid, you are free to travel in and out of the zone for one day as you choose. You are able to pay the charge by calling the Congestion Charge contact number. Not all vehicles are required to pay the charge. Exempt vehicles include two-wheeled motorbikes, emergency service vehicles, vehicles used by a disabled person and licensed taxis. If you live in or near to the zone you may be eligible for a 90% discount.
