Consultation on incentivising cleaner fuel technologies: implementing amendments to the General Circulation Directive and other associated proposals

Consultation opened on 15 November 2016. Closing date 10 January 2017.


The Department is seeking your views on whether extra weight allowances for alternatively fuelled vehicles should be extended to purely domestic journeys, as well as international journeys.


Consultation description

We are also proposing to rescind the requirement of a vehicle special order for type-approved hydrogen and gas powered vehicles.

The new Directive allows the weight increases for certain vehicles using certain alternative fuel technologies when used for international journeys.

We propose allowing operators to benefit from these weight increases for domestic journeys as well as international journeys.
