Additional Road Tax in Austria
New: IG-L Emission Class Identification Badge
Since the beginning of 2015, every truck in Austria needs an ‘abgasklassenplakette’ for a particular area. This is a sticker/vignette that need to be put on your windscreen.
What does a sticker cost? For trucks between Euronorm 2-6, you pay around 40 euro. If you have no sticker, you can risk a fine of 2180 Euros.
Where can I get the emission sticker?
For HGVs over 3.5 tonnes it is possible to get the sticker from a workshop without actually presenting the vehicle. Download the contact points here. You can order them too by OAMTC. They offer a service to send the stickers by post. Expect to wait 15 days to receive a sticker.
Where do I need this sticker? For now, you only need the sticker around Vienna (east) and Graz, but the government is planning to expand this in the near future. Download here for a bigger image.
