Use of vignettes

The entire surface of the first part of the vignette must be directly attached to the inside of the vehicle’s windshield (or the first vehicle in a group of vehicles). The vignette must be placed at the bottom of the windshield, so that the driver’s view is least restricted and the vignette is easily visible from the outside of the vehicle.

If the vehicle is not equipped with a windshield, the first part of the vignette and its entire surface must be directly attached to the right front of the vehicle and firmly attached to the supporting parts. The vignette must be positioned so that it can be inspected and must be protected from direct spray from the vehicle’s wheels.

The second part of the vignette is to be kept with the driver for inspection by the Police of the Czech Republic or the Czech Customs Administration.

Both parts of the vignette must have the vehicle registration number (hereinafter referred to as "VRN") filled in so that it matches the license plate of the vehicle. The VRN should be filled in on the back side of the second part of the vignette.

A vignette is valid provided the following conditions are met:

  • It matches to the decreed model.
  • It indicates the VRN (on both parts of the vignette) which corresponds to the VRN on the vehicle’s license plate. If case the vehicle’s registration number changes, the vignette does not change and remains valid even with the old VRN.
  • Both parts of the vignette have the same label, i.e. a six-letter series and serial number.
  • Ten-day and monthly vignettes must have the first part of the vignette attached to the windshield with the designated validity marked (the vendor will make a hole with punch pliers). A vignette with a validity shorter than one year without a valid date is invalid and must be removed from the vehicle.

When buying ten-day and monthly vignettes, drivers should check whether the vendor has marked the beginning of the vignette’s validity prior to filling in the VRN.

The vignette is non-transferable. After it has been attached to the windshield, it cannot be used for another vehicle.

Expired vignettes must be removed from the windshield.
