Information on the Eurovignette
You must pay a toll by purchasing a Eurovignette for vehicles over 12 t using motorways in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark and Sweden. Coaches are excluded from this rule.
The electronic Eurovignette records all the necessary information (licence plate number, emission class, number of axles and the validity period) digitally. The driver is not required to carry printed proof, e.g. for checking or inspections.
If you wish, DKV will automatically inform you in good time before the electronic Eurovignette expires.
