Which vehicles need a vignette?

All motor vehicles using the motorways require a vignette. These include cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles and all types of trailer. Motor vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes need a vignette if they are not already covered by the heavy goods vehicle charge (LSVA).

Do I need to remove the old vignette?

Yes, you are advised to do so. The authorities can fine drivers if their view is obstructed by one or more vignettes. This decision rests entirely with the officer – so it is better to remove old vignettes rather than take the risk.

What is the fine for driving without a vignette?

If the authorities stop you on the motorway and you have no vignette, you will have to pay a fine of 200 francs. You must then also purchase a valid sticker and attach it to the windscreen correctly.
