Road tax vignettes

Road tax vignettes must be purchased for the use of Slovenian motorways, including the Ljubljana bypass. The roads where the vignette is required are marked by special vignette signs. Vignettes can be purchased at petrol stations located in the border areas of Slovenia's neighbouring countries, at petrol stations, post offices and most newspaper kiosks in Slovenia, and at branch offices of the Automobile Association of Slovenia (AMZS) and other automobile clubs.

Vignette prices

  • €15.00 for a weekly vignette for personal vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes
  • €30.00 for a monthly vignette for personal vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes
  • €110.00 for an annual vignette for personal vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes
  • €7.50 for a weekly vignette for motorcycles
  • €30.00 for a half-year vignette for motorcycles
  • €55.00 for an annual vignette for motorcycles

An exception are double-track motor vehicles (with or without a trailer) whose height above the front axle is 1.3 metres or more and whose maximum gross weight does not exceed 3,500 kilograms. Those driving on Slovenian motorways without a vignette are liable to a fine from €300 to €800
