Consultation on regulations for alternatively fuelled vans

On 26 July 2017, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), along with the Department for Transport (DfT), announced its plan to help reduce roadside nitrogen dioxide concentrations.

The plan includes a consultation asking for your views on proposed changes to regulations for vans and light commercial vehicles.

As part of the proposed changes, van drivers will be able to operate heavier electric or gas powered vehicles without having to apply for a new licence. The changes also include whether the VAT exemption for electric vans should be removed.

Find out more about how the proposed changes will work and give your views by 18 October 2017.
