About Czech vignette online

The Czech digital vignette is a mandatory document that drivers of certain vehicles must possess to drive in the Czech Republic. Since 2021, the Czech vignette has been available only as an e-vignette. Even though there are still some vignette outlets, including self-service kiosks, traditional toll stickers are no longer sold.

The vignette requirement in the Czech Republic applies to all motor vehicles with at least four wheels whose GVW is up to 3.5 t. There are no extra tolls for motorbikes and trailers.

Drivers can easily purchase a Czech vignette online. The purchasing process involves providing essential vehicle information, such as license plates and country of vehicle registration, and covering the service fee. The vignette confirmation will arrive at the driver’s email address shortly after completing the payment. The Czech vignette system is fully digitalized, meaning a driver doesn’t need to carry any printed confirmation of the purchased vignette.

Drivers are exempt from a Czech vignette if their vehicles exceed 3.5t, including vans or campers. Instead, they should install a GPS device, and the toll will be estimated based on the distance traveled in the country.

Hydrogen, hybrid, or electric car owners (whose CO2 emission isn’t higher than 50g/km) are vignette-exempt. Nevertheless, they must hold a special plate to avoid paying the fees.

Why are vignettes mandatory in the Czech Republic

Many European countries introduced the vignette system to collect the road tax, which is a significant source of money. The collected money can be next spent on maintaining the national road network.

Vignettes are a form of road tax that is imposed on drivers. The fees differ according to the duration of time they plan to use the toll roads in the Czech Republic.

The country introduced camera systems monitoring vehicles on the road. Using Czech highways and expressways without an active vignette may be very costly as it is subject to fines.

Exceptions to the mandatory vignette usage in the Czech Republic

You shouldn’t have problems identifying toll roads as they are marked with green and white road signs along the Czech highways and expressways. Please also note that there are some cities where you don’t need a vignette to drive, including Brno and Prague.

There are also some exemptions when certain vehicle categories are allowed to drive in the Czech Republic without a valid vignette. These vehicles include:

Vehicles registered in the Czech Republic

The following vehicles are given an automatic vignette exemption:

  • vehicles powered by hydrogen, electricity, or a hybrid system (up to 50g/km CO2 emission) – a special license plate number is required
  • vehicles transporting certain individuals (severely disabled people)
  • vehicles transporting dependent children (treated for hemoblastosis or cancer)
  • historic vehicles (holding special license plates)

Vehicles registered abroad

  • vehicles powered by hydrogen, electricity, or a hybrid fuel system (with CO2 emissions not exceeding 50 g/km)

The Police of the Czech Republic and the Customs Administration perform vignette controls by scanning vehicle license plate numbers in Czechia. Thanks to the camera system, they can verify vehicles traveling without an active vignette or check whether they are vignette-exempt. The patrols equipped with cameras are connected to control gates. The control can also be performed at parking lots or rest stops.

A person who is driving without an active vignette (without being vignette-exempt) should expect a fine of up to CZK 20,000. Misusing the right to exemption is subject to even higher penalties – up to CZK 100,000 for submitting an exemption notice without being entitled to do so and up to CZK 5,000 if eligible for exemption, but a driver failed to submit the notice.
