The Birmingham Clean Air Zone is a class D CAZ meaning that all vehicles that do not meet the emissions requirements (except motorcycles) are liable to pay unless you have an exemption. It covers the city centre (within the A4540 Middleway but not the Middleway itself) and the charge is £8 per day for most vehicles and £50 per day for Coaches, Buses and HGVs.
Charges for driving in the Birmingham Clean Air Zone apply 7 days a week from midnight to midnight, all year round. The emissions standards to avoid the charge are Euro 6 or better for Diesel and LPG vehicles, Euro 4 or better for Petrol. Hybrid standards are based on whatever petrol or diesel engine the vehicle has.
Payment of the CAZ charge needs to be made up to 6 days before or within 6 days after driving within the zone. If you don't you may end up with a £120 fine in addition to the charge.
