Information for Blue Badge holders driving in the Clean Air Zone

When the Bristol Clean Air Zone started in November 2022 we introduced temporary Blue Badge Daily and Longer Term Exemptions. These exemptions ended on Friday 31 March 2023, if you had these exemptions you'll now need to pay the daily charge if your vehicle isn't compliant. 

You can check if your vehicle will be charged to drive in the Clean Air Zone on the online vehicle checker (GOV.UK)

National Exemption

If your vehicle has disabled tax class you do not have to pay the charge.  Apply for disabled tax class (GOV.UK)

Clean Air Zone financial support

You may be eligible for financial support if you need to replace your vehicle if it doesn't meet the zone's emission standards.
