Carbon Footprint of Historic Vehicles


Here in the UK we currently enjoy a ‘road tax’ free status for our Historic Class vehicles along with an exclusion from paying charges for entering Low Emission Zones (LEZ’s). This is in recognition that our cars not only cover a minimal mileage each year but also fall outside the current emissions classification system. 

This is great news for owners and helps to protect the Classic Car movement, however as the clamour increases to reduce carbon emissions we as a group are likely to come under increasing political pressure in the future. To pre empt this the FBHVC in collaboration with ‘Tree-V‘ have set up a scheme for owners to offset their annual carbon footprint, and to display a supporting windscreen sticker.
