DGT ‘ECO’ sticker label information


The new Spanish DGT environmental ECO label: where can you buy it and how much does it cost?

As many of you will already know, from January 1, all cities in Spain with more than 50,000 inhabitants must set up low-emission zones. These zones will in the future only be able to be accessed with an environmental label (officially known as a ZBE label) issued by the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT).

To date, the DGT was the only body with the authourity to issue these badges. To prevent overload due to requests for low emission zone (ZBE) stickers, several methods and locations have been made available for acquiring them.

The first of these places is the local Post Office where it is only necessary to present the circulation permit and the DNI of the owner of the vehicle. After paying 5 euros for the sticker, it should be placed in the lower right corner of the interior on the front window.

They can be bought at the same price through the Spanish Confederation of Workshops, authorised garages, administrative managers, and the Institute of Automotive Studies.

Explainer: What are the four ZBE labels?

There are four labels with which the DGT identifies each vehicle based on the type of engine, as well as its age.

  • Yellow ‘B’ sticker: for internal combustion vehicles that, although they do not comply with the latest EURO emission specifications, do comply with the previous ones. This label is intended for passenger cars and light gasoline vans registered since January 2001 and diesel from 2006, and heavy vehicles with more than 8 seats both gasoline and diesel registered since 2006.
  • Green ‘C’ sticker – For internal combustion vehicles that comply with the latest EURO emissions. Passenger cars and light gasoline vans registered from January 2006 and diesel from September 2015 will be entitled to this label, and vehicles with more than 8 seats and heavy vehicles, both gasoline and diesel, registered since 2014.
  • ‘ECO’ sticker – These are most hybrid or gas-powered vehicles. Plug-in electric vehicles with a range of fewer than 40 kilometers, non-plug-in hybrids (HEV), vehicles powered by natural gas and gas (CNG and LNG), or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are entitled to this label. They must meet the criteria for label C.
  • Blue ‘0 emissions’ sticker identifies the most efficient vehicles. They will be entitled to this label battery electric (BEV), extended range electric (REEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) with a range of more than 40 km, or fuel cell vehicles.
