Can you drive straight into London in an electric car or do you have to register the car with TFL first?
If a recent data point helps, it's more like 2 weeks at the moment (just got mine through for the Skoda). So not something that can be done on impulse unfortunately!Yes you have to register for exemption from the congestion charge for £10 a year and wait until they confirm by email. Normally takes around a week.
These days as long as you have a scan you can upload that’s acceptable. (Both my current cars are leased so in each case I’ve had to request a copy of the V5 from the leaseco.)You do have to have a physical V5 though (I think?). Still waiting for ours to arrive after buying our eNiro. The congestion charge thing is exceptionally annoying because I thought the exemption would just be automatic.
