Passenger car toll in Czech Republic
Roads subject to tolls and compulsory vignette
A vignette obligation exists in the Czech Republic for all vehicles, up to and including 3.5 tons, on all roads which are identified with sign-posting “Highway” and “Express Way”.
All vehicles with a permissible total weight of more than 3.5 tons (also mobile homes) must pay the route-based toll with an electronic toll box (Premid Box).
Road sections free of charge also exist which are identified by a sign with the lettering “BEZ POPLATKU” or by a crossed out vignette.
Tip: Affix the vignette immediately on receipt.
Only an undamaged vignette, which is valid and stuck on outside of a sunshade strip on the inside of the windscreen, provides verification of proper toll payment.
The use of motorways and other toll-charged roads without a vignette, which is valid and properly attached on the vehicle, is penalised with a fine of up to 5,000 CZK (in administrative procedure up to 100,000 CZK).
All Czech vignettes consist of two parts, where the correct license plate number of the vehicle must be entered on both parts of the vignette as mandatory (not with pencil!). The larger part of the vignette is then to be attached to the windscreen at the correct position. The smaller part must be presented in case of a control-check.
The vignette obligation applies for all vehicles with a maximum permissible total weight up to and including 3.5 tons (except for motorcycles) with or without trailers. All vehicles whose maximum permissible total weight is above 3.5 t (applies also for mobile homes) require an electronic toll box (Premid Box), which is available at selected service stations.

Even if motorcycles have a side-car, no vignette obligation exists.
In the Czech Republic trikes are treated like motorcycles, and are therefore not subject to the vignette obligation.
No! The decisive factor for the vignette obligation is exclusively the permissible total weight of the tractive unit. One tag can be used at all times.
The larger part of the vignette is to be attached, complete and undamaged, inside on the lower right-hand edge of the windscreen of the vehicle, so that it is visible completely from the outside. Furthermore, the view of the driver may not be impaired. The smaller part of the vignette is to kept and produced with possible control-checks. A vignette is valid only if the larger part is attached on the windscreen and the correct license plate of the vehicle entered on both vignette parts.
All quads with road certification require a vignette.
If an already stuck-on vignette is detached from the windscreen, this is invalid. The vignette cannot be stuck on again.
The exact attachment location of the vignette on the windscreen is stipulated. The vignette may be attached only on the inside on the lower right-hand edge of the windscreen.
The second (smaller) vignette section is not to be stuck on, rather it is only to be kept and presented in case of control-checks.
Yes, the vignette obligation is checked regularly in the Czech Republic.
The detachment and transfer of the vignettes onto other vehicles are not permitted. Detached vignettes lose their validity.
No. The decision regarding the purchase and the vignette type and the associated risk rests only with the customer.
