Vehicles registered in Belgium do not have to register.
The registration is processed automatically, there is no application processing period. You will automatically receive an e-mail confirming your registration.
Do not rely on websites offering you the purchase of stickers. They are neither necessary nor valid to travel in the Brussels LEZ.
On 23 January 2019, the Brussels court for French-speaking businesses handed down a ruling ordering Green Zone, a company governed by German law, to correct, in all the languages used on its websites, the erroneous information that encourages the purchase of a sticker to register a vehicle registered abroad.
The only LEZ-related charge is a day pass and it can only be purchased via this website. All other LEZ-related procedures (exemption and registration) are free of charge and can only be done via this site.
What you need to know about the registration of your vehicle
Registration concerns cars, vans (≤ 3.5 tonnes), minibuses and buses/coaches registered abroad, except for vehicles registered in the Netherlands.
Vehicle registration is free and valid for 5 years, provided that the vehicle information does not change.
Users must register before entering OR the day after entering the Low Emission Zone. Since the 1st of January 2020, it has been possible to register a vehicle registered abroad (before midnight) on the day after using the LEZ. Example: if I drive in the LEZ on the 3rd of January with a foreign-registered vehicle, I have until midnight on the 4th of January to register it.
The vehicle registration certificate is required to register.
More than 20 vehicles to register?
For companies or other types of organisations with a fleet of more than 20 vehicles, it is possible to submit a “mass” exemption application by contacting Bruxelles Fiscalité (Brussels Taxation) at this e-mail adress: email@example.com.
Error in the registration?
If, once validated, there is an error in your registration, you can correct this error by making a new registration request. The information in the new record will automatically replace the information of the previous form.
What is the expiry date of my registration?
To find out the due date of registration or to check if the vehicle is registered, simply enter the licence plate and the date of first registration in the simulator.
To renew the registration, simply complete the form again. Please note: no expiry reminders will be sent.
Any vehicle entering the Brussels Region Low Emission Zone without registering in advance is liable to a fine of €150 (even if the vehicle complies with the conditions for accessing the LEZ). Any inaccurate information submitted during registration is liable for an administrative fine of €25.
