A day pass: what you need to know

  • The day pass costs €35 per day. It will cost 20€ per day for mopeds and motorbikes, 50€ per day for heavy goods vehicles.
  • The pass can be purchased in advance of entering the LEZ OR within the five days after entering the Low Emission Zone. Since the 14th of March 2024, it has been possible to buy the day pass within the five days after using the LEZ. Example: if I drive through the LEZ on the 3rd of January with a non-compliant vehicle, I have until the 8th of January at midnight to buy a pass.
  • After purchasing the pass, it takes 15 minutes before you can verify in the simulator that your purchase has been taken into account.
  • A maximum of 24 day passes can be purchased per year and per vehicle.
  • On the 1st of January each year, the vehicle will have another 24 days to travel via the purchase of a pass.
  • The day pass is valid only for the calendar day for which it was purchased and until 6am the next day.
  • You only need to buy a day pass for the day(s) when you’re using vour vehicle. Example: you arrive in Brussels on 19 September and leave on 23 September, but you leave your vehicle in a car park on 20, 21 and 22 September. You only need to buy two day passes: one for 19 September and one for 23 September.
  • Your licence plate number and the date of first registration of the vehicle (as well as the last registration date for foreign vehicles) are required to purchase a pass.
  • Drivers of foreign-registered vehicles (including The Netherlands) who would like to purchase a day pass must first register their vehicle.
  • Only passes purchased via this platform are valid. Passes do not come in sticker or paper form.
