Apply for an exemption to access to a low emission zone

A milieuzone (low emission zone) is an area in a city where certain road vehicles are not allowed due to the level of pollution they emit. For example, diesel cars and lorry trucks. Are you unable to drive your vehicle in a low emission zone in the Netherlands because it doesn’t meet the emissions standards? You may be eligible for an exemption from the municipality.

There are 15 low emission zones in the Netherlands. For example, diesel cars and lorry trucks. There are also low emission zones for mopeds and motorbikes in Den Haag (The Hague) and Amsterdam.
