answer text <p>We continue to press manufacturers to rectify failings where vehicles on the road, even some of the newest models, show harmful emissions levels significantly greater than the laboratory test limits. Some manufacturers have committed to offering voluntary software changes to EU5 and EU6 vehicles to improve their real world performance and we are encouraging other manufacturers to do the same.</p><p> </p><p>In the Autumn Budget, Government announced supplements to Vehicle Excise Duty and Company Car Tax for new diesel cars not certified to step 2 of Real Driving Emissions (RDE2) standards – also known as Euro-6d. These supplements provide strong incentives for manufacturers to innovate and adopt cleaner technologies on an accelerated basis.</p> more like this

answer text <p>All vehicles must meet strict emission standards before they enter use and emissions from private cars are then checked at the annual MoT for cars of 3 years age and older.</p><p> </p><p>Smoky lorries and buses can be reported by telephone via DVSA’s national number, online via GOV.UK or by sending an email. DVSA will then send a letter to the registered keeper of the vehicle as recorded on the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s database. The letter is also copied to the remote enforcement office at DVSA. The operator is then required to undergo an emissions test and submit the results to DVSA’s enforcement team.</p><p> </p><p>The Government currently has no plans to extend the ability to report suspected excessive lorry and bus exhaust emissions to private cars and motorcycles. It remains the user’s responsibility to ensure the vehicle continues to meet these emissions standards at all times while in use.</p> more like this

answer text <p>As part of the work to establish clean air zones, it may be necessary for some local authorities to implement local charging schemes for certain vehicles. We are therefore developing the necessary infrastructure to support charging schemes, which includes working with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency on how owners of affected vehicles could check to see whether or not a charge is applicable.</p> more like this
