Be aware of the London T-Charge starting 23/10/2017

London’s new emissions levy explained

Applies to most pre-2006 vehicles

Set to cost drivers £10 a day 

T Charge

What is the London T-Charge?

The T-Charge (aka the Toxicity Charge) is a £10 levy on older vehicles entering the centre of London. It is due to come into effect on 23 October 2017 and will apply to all vehicles which do not meet Euro 4 emissions standards – typically those registered before 2006.

When and where will the T-Charge be enforced?

The T-Charge will run in the same area and over the same operating times (Monday to Friday 7am-6pm) as the existing London Congestion Charge zone.

Pre-Euro 4 vehicles entering the zone during the prescribed hours will be liable for a daily fee of £21.50 (this including the existing £11.50 Congestion Charge levy).

Will I have to pay the T-Charge?

It all depends on whether your vehicle meets Euro 4 emissions standards. Transport for London (TfL) has provided an online vehicle checker for users to determine whether their car meets the Euro 4 standard.

Why introduce the T-Charge?

Experts claim that London is facing a public health crisis due to the current levels of air pollution. London Mayor Sadiq Khan hopes that by creating the Toxicity Charge, the number of high-polluting vehicles in the capital will be reduced.

 

 

Crit’Air French Clean Air Stickers – What you need to know for driving in France now!

If you are hiring a vehicle to go to France, please do let us know if you will be driving/riding in Paris, Lyon or Grenoble. We will need to apply for a Crit Air Sticker for you.

critair-signs

The French clean air stickers – called Crit’Air vignettes – are part of a six-category sticker system that applies to all motor vehicles in certain areas to identify what emissions they produce.

The six categories have six colours that denote how heavily polluting the vehicle is according to its Euro emissions standard

The vignette, or sticker system has been introduced to reduce the emissions output in larger cities, so on days where certain cities are at risk of reaching their Euro emissions limit, heavily polluting vehicles can be refused entrance based on the Crit’Air sticker they are displaying on the windscreen.

The initiatives applies to all cars, motorbikes and lorries and affects both French residents and foreign drivers/riders – although if you have a particularly old car that does not conform to any emissions standards, you won’t be eligible for a vignette and you won’t be permitted to drive/ride your vehicle during those times when restrictions are imposed, so between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday.

Models registered before 1997, motorbikes and scooters from before June 2000, and trucks and buses from before 2001 are the main offenders in terms of emissions.

It is also worth noting that the Crit’Air scheme also applies to disabled vehicle owners.

The stickers are currently in use in Paris, Lyon and Grenoble.  22 other Cities are looking to introduce this system.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) when hiring a van or commercial vehicle

Supervan Ltd has a huge range of vans and commercial vehicles available to hire; if you have any specific questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us, but you may find the below FAQs helpful.

What is included in the price of a rental vehicle?

Our hire charges include the vehicle itself, which are all less than three years old and come with air conditioning, power steering, central locking and a CD player as standard, as well as fully comprehensive insurance. In addition, all of our rental vehicles are covered by roadside assistance to ensure your peace of mind.

Your chosen van will also be cleaned and maintained to the highest standard both before and after your hire period as part of our ongoing service.

How old do I have to be to rent a van?

You must be between the age of 25 and 70 in order to hire a van or commercial vehicle under our insurance cover. You must also have held a full UK driving licence for at least two years.

What documents do I need to hire a van with Supervan?

You must produce a full, valid UK driving licence; it must be your original licence as photocopies will not be accepted. If you hold a photocard licence, we will also need your paper counterpart.

Supervan Ltd will also require a minimum of two forms of additional identification, such as your passport, utility bills and/or bank statements and corresponding credit or debit cards.

You will be asked to pay an excess – or deposit – of £650 by credit or debit card. This covers our insurance policy excess and will be the maximum amount you will be required to pay in case of an accident.

This deposit is fully refundable upon safe and undamaged return of the commercial vehicle.

If you hold a full standard UK driving licence, you are entitled to drive any of our vans and commercial up to our 3.5 tonne Luton Van. However, in order to hire Supervan Ltd’s 7.5 tonne Box Lorry, you must have the higher category C1 on your driving licence.

Please note that if you hold an automatic driving licence, you will only be able to drive our range of automatic vans.

How long can I hire a van for?

Superbike Rental can you hire a motorbike with points on your licence

Can you hire a van with points of your licence?

Most people will be aware that you are convicted of a motoring offence, the courts can not only fine you but also ‘endorse’ your driving licence with penalty points. However, what you may not realise is that there are many different endorsement codes – or types of points – which will be added to the counterpart document of your photocard licence. There is no hiding these points, so it is vital that you know of any limitations or restrictions that may come with attempting to hire a van.

Each endorsement has a code and its own penalty points that are on a scale of 1 to 11. They will also have to stay on your driving licence for a set amount of time.

What type of endorsement codes are there?

Accident offences are coded as ‘AC’ and include failure to stop after an accident, and failure to report or provide particulars on an accident within 24 hours. These offence come with 5 to 10 penalty points and must remain on your licence for four years from the date of the offence.

Disqualified driver (BA) offences must also stay on your driving licence for four years. Earning you 6 penalty points apiece, these offences include driving whilst disqualified by the court and attempting to drive whilst disqualified.

Codes CD10, CD20 and CD30 range from 3 to 9 penalty points and cover minor careless driving offences. As above, they remain on your licence for four years. Codes CD40, CD50, CD60 and CD70, CD80 and CD90 are far more serious, covering death by dangerous driving, which will also carry a court conviction.

Other more serious penalty codes include:

DD10 – Reckless/Dangerous Driving (causing serious injury by dangerous driving)
DR10 – Drink and Drugs (driving or attempting to drive with alcohol level above limit)
IN10 – Insurance Offences (using a vehicle uninsured against third party risks)
MS50 – Miscellaneous Offences (motor racing on the highway)
MW10 – Motorway Offences (contravention of special roads regulations (excluding speed limits)
PC10 – Pedestrian Crossing (undefined contravention of pedestrian crossing regulations)
SP30 – Speed Limits (exceeding statutory speed limit on a public road)

For a full list of endorsement codes and penalty points you may want to check out the gov.uk website.

Can I still hire a vehicle?

When it comes to hiring a van, Supervan Ltd is – as all hire companies are – restricted by our insurance company when it comes to renting vans and other vehicles to drivers with points on their licence. We are able to hire vans, cars and motorbikes to people with no more than 6 points on their licence; anything more and your request would have to be referred to our insurer.

The types of penalty points on your licence will then be assessed. If your offences are fairly minor such as speeding or traffic light violations you may still be able to hire a van, car or motorbike from Supervan Ltd; however, if you have a drink driving conviction under 5 years old or you have previously been disqualified from driving, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to insure you and therefore supply you with a rental vehicle.

Are you unsure about your ability to hire a vehicle with points on your driving licence? Please call Supervan Ltd today to discuss your needs and circumstances and we will do all we can to help.
