Yes, and as long as the sticker is fixed in position, it is valid for the life of the vehicle

That is correct Caro, Doesn't matter which town you buy it from, its valid for the whole country.

for those interested we have just had a hjs filter fitted by Wankmuller in Dagersheim which now gives us a green umwelt plackette to replace the yellow one which meqns we can go anywhere.

the cost of fitting one in London would have been 1800-3500 GBP depending on the company fitting via the Transport for London web site. We just paid 999 € so we are pleased. The filter is self cleaning with no maintenance required other than a run at 2-3000 revs for 50km if you've only done short trips.

I realise even at that price it may not be cost effective for some but our family and friends live mostly in Baden Württemberg so we could not visit anyone without a green plackette. Hope this helps.

How´s my driving? Call 0800..........AAAAARRGH!!

Thanks for that info Commuter.

Apart from being really useful info, it also put things into perspective, ie, the fine for not having the Umwelt Plakette set at €40 in Germany, but a similar fine for not complying with the LEZ here in the UK, is set at the extortionate fee of between £100-£200 per day, depending on weight.

Although still expensive, I would consider having the German conversion done, if we were in Germany for months in the year.

Cheers for now,

Jock.

So am I right in saying for my 1996 Hymer I'm going to get a red sticker? This is a bit of a gutter as we were planning a trip to Germany in October down to Stuttgart and the black forest.

And is it right that if I put a scooter on the back it would be exempt?

You might not even get a red one as the qualifying vehicle registration dates for red are 1997 - 2000. There aren't many, if any towns that accept a red sticker nowadays anyway.

I shouldn't worry too much, its only for the centres of certain towns/cities in that region and there is usually efficient public transport from outlying areas and nearby campsites/stellplatze.

If you did risk it worse case scenario is a €40 fine but general concensus is that the Politzei have got far more important things to worry about and its not too tightly controlled but the decision is entirely yours of course.

No need for a sticker for the scooter, all two wheeled traffic is exempt.
