Entry Bans – Vehicles without Environmental Badge

Since the environmental zones in Austria still only concern Lorries, busses, motorcycles, cars and motorhomes are at any time free to drive into them. Those can already since 2015 order an Austrian environmental badge on a voluntary basis since an extension of the obligation of bearing a badge to all kinds of vehicles is expected.

The following vehicles from the categories N1 to N3 cannot obtain any environmental badge and are consequently not allowed to drive into the Austrian environmental zones:

  • Lorries/trucks from the categories N1 to N3 registered before 01.10.1993 (EURO 0)
  • Lorries/trucks from the categories N1 to N3 registered before 01.10.1996 (EURO 1*)
  • Lorries/trucks from the categories N1 to N3 registered before 01.10.2001 (EURO 2*)

*partly, depending on the environmental zone

Each federal state in Austria has however its own rules, so that only EURO 0 can be for sure excluded. You will find more details under the menu point “environmental zones in Austra”.

This traffic banning is always valid from Monday to Sunday, from 0pm to 0am, in other words 24/7.
