Exemption from charging for eco-powered vehicles and ZTP holders

Electric or hydrogen powered vehicles are exempt from toll payment and can use all roads without vignette. For combined powered vehicles is set CO2 emission limit at 50 g/km.

The exemption also applies to vehicles transporting certain severely disabled citizens, vehicles equipped with a special warning light, some government vehicles and some vehicles used to assist citizens. Cases in which you can drive across highways without vignette are strictly defined and before using the rule I recommend to study them at sfdi.cz.

For vehicles with a maximum authorised mass exceeding 3,5 t is designed electronic toll system Myto CZ. Charged is passage of motorways and 1st class roads.

Frequently asked questions about Czech vignettes

1) Is highway vignette in Czechia necessary?

Vignette is required for passenger cars for driving on most motorways and expressways in Czechia. Parts of some bypasses of major cities and unfinished roads are excluded from toll collection. Map and list of current toll roads can be found at sfdi.cz.

2) Is vignette required for motorcycles?

Tolls on motorways with a motorway stamp apply to vehicles with a maximum permissible weight of up to 3.5 t and at least four wheels. Passage of motorways is free of charge for motorcycles and tricycles.

3) Which vignette for a vehicle with trailer?

The division of vehicles into weight categories is made according to the total weight of the vehicle stated in the technical certificate. When driving with a trailer, weights do not add up to determine the method of toll charging, and one vignette is enough for a vehicle weighing up to 3.5 t and pulling trailer.

4) Is it possible to transfer the vignette to another vehicle?

The motorway stamp is intended for use for one vehicle to which it is linked via a registration plate, and it is not possible to transfer it to another vehicle. Coupon replacement is only possible if the license plate is changed, the transport or registration number on the coupon is incorrectly filled in, the vehicle windscreen or some part of the coupon is lost or damaged. Information on the exchange can be found at sfdi.cz.

5) What are the lengths of validity of the vignettes?

Vignettes are sold in three validity periods: 10 days, month and year. The validity of the ten-day coupon is calculated from the beginning of the validity, which is manually marked on the vignette. The monthly vignette is valid until the numerically same day as the beginning of validity in the following month, if the day with the given number does not exist in the calendar, the coupon is valid until the last day of the month. The annual vignette is valid from 1 December of the previous year to 31 January of the year following the year indicated on the coupon.

6) Where can I buy highway vignette?

The motorway stamp can be purchased at most common points of sale, such as petrol stations, Czech Post branches, ABA and UAMK establishments, in exchange offices or through the retailer MTX.cz. From 2021, the sticker will be replaced by an e-vignette, which can be purchased online.

7) In which cases can I drive on the motorway without valid vignette?

Vehicles that use electricity or hydrogen as propulsion are free of charge and can drive without a vignette. For vehicles using combined propulsion is set the CO2 emission limit to 50 g/km. The exemption also applies to the transport of certain severely disabled persons, to certain state administration vehicles and in several other cases. Details can be found at sfdi.cz.
