    Hi London Landyers!

    I'm a long time prospective Land Rover buyer BUT live in Zone 2 in the big smoke near Greenwich.

    As you may already know, the ULEZ zone extends from Zone 1 in Oct 2021 out to include most of inner London from October 2021 meaning it will be £12.50/day inside N & S circulars for non-compliant vehicles. This will therefore include my house :\

    Historic vehicles (i.e pre-1981 (by 2021) or 40 years before present) are exempt which presents a nice excuse and opportunity to invest in a series Landy.

    So I wondered if Series III and earlier vehicles that have had the 200TDI Disco conversion would still qualify as exempt? Clearly, the engine within said historic vehicle will not be 'historic' in a compliance sense in spite of its increased efficiency.

    Anybody have any experience and/or insight? Or any links to other threads online covering this?

    Cheers!

    Are you sure a series is exempt, I typed the reg of my 1977 series into the web page checker and it said it was t exempt.

    Per the screenshot below - you need to register for exemption - I don't think the various vehicle databases marry and obviously they can catch more unsuspecting classic owners with an opt in system like this!

    Thanks for that, my series is registered as historic with the DVLA and I expected the LEZ to recognise this. I don't plan on using the landy in London, I would be lucky if it got as far as London, I just entered its reg out of curiosity. I wonder if the price of historic landys will go up as more Londoners realise their benefit.
