Slovakia vignette control

Order a mandatory Slovakia digital vignette for vehicles up to 3.5t and receive an active vignette via email.

Vignette inspection in Slovakia

The Slovak vignette control is performed by the authorities via a camera system and drones. The registration plate number of the vehicle can be checked remotely at any time.

All vehicles with a maximum permissible total weight of up to 3.5 tons must have a purchased motorway vignette to enter Slovakia toll roads. In 2016, the Slovak government introduced an e-vignette (electronic vignette) that substituted a standard vignette in the form of a sticker.

Now, a digital vignette is available at most border crossings and petrol stations and by online purchase. The best way, in terms of convenience, is to get an online vignette. 

The ordering process takes a few minutes only. A customer must complete a registration form, cover the fees, and check the inbox. Slovakia e-vignette will be delivered directly to the customer’s email address. 

The Slovak vignette is available in different options of validity period: 10 days, 30 days, 365 days, and 1 year. Choose the vignette type according to your travel plans, as the vignette should remain effective for the entire duration of your stay in Slovakia.

Fines and penalties

Drivers of vehicles up to 3.5 tons using the roads in Slovakia toll system without a valid vignette risk being fined from €100 to €500. It is necessary to purchase a motorway vignette before entering Slovak highways and motorways. The vignette must be digitally connected to the correct plate number and be of the proper vehicle category. Always check the validity of your vignette – if your vignette expires, you will be subject to penalties as well.

Vehicles whose maximum permissible weight exceeds 3.5 tons do not need an e-vignette for Slovakia. However, since 2010, drivers of such vehicles must install a special toll box measuring the distance traveled. The final toll will depend on the vehicle’s and the driven distance.
