    It is a shame that this is posted today the 8th, start of the ULEZ and that there isn’t a test centre outside of the zone. It is mighty expensive, somebody else making money from the scooterist.

      We only got the story at the end of last week and the testing centre isn’t open until today. Plus if you’re a resident you get a sunset period.

    Great news about the 2-strokes. I expect these testing centres will spring up in most big cities now.

    I’ve got a mk1 p2 tuned vespa chopper I live in cricklewood northwest London I try to ride at least once a week about 30/40 miles if that as I’m disabled
    I try to get out and about to different rideouts but as a lot is inside the ulez it will stop me and a lot of people from pursuing with our hobby if I done the sons of anadin night ride like I do it will now cost me £25 before I even put petrol in
    So being on Benifit’s I can’t afford it so I won’t go to anymore dos or rideouts
    And I definitely can’t afford the £175 to get it tested so I’ll probably just give up riding altogether and so will a lot of people
    Sorry for the rant

    I own a 1991 standard GP200 which I use every day for despatch riding, and learning the Knowledge. I’m the second owner and have owned it since 1993. I ride at least 50 miles per day and I can’t afford to have it tested or to pay the ULEZ charge, so this affects me drastically. I live in NW6 which is just outside the ULEZ zone and I’m going to have to change the way I work. I’m not going to use a push bike as it’s too slow and too dangerous. My car is exempt from the ULEZ so TfL are actually forcing me off a scooter and into a diesel car, adding to congestion and slowing me down at the same time. I’ll be selling my scooter.

    My scooter is bellow the NOx limit and I have to fork out £175 to prove it???? This is either corrupt, shambolic or both
