LEZ Road sign
Similar signs are on the entry to each Swedish LEZ.
Need to Register?
Vehicles that meet environmental zone rules need no decal. Vehicles that have current decal under the rules that applied before 2007 must have an exemption sticker placed prominently displayed in the windscreen.
Adapted vehicles must meet all the emissions standards of the set Euro standard. It is possible to upgrade a Euro-2 and Euro-3 vehicles to Euro-5 via retrofitting emission control devices (such as particulate trap with SCR) approved by the Swedish Transport Agency.
It is important to retrofit with equipment that conforms with the rules for the Swedish LEZs. Those vehicles with an existing permit from the previous ruling on retrofitting with just particulate traps are still allowed.
Hours of operation
24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The LEZ scheme is a local scheme operated by separate cities, but on a national framework. So the standards for each Swedish city are the same, see the standards outlined above.
None, however, certain roads are exempt, see map
