From January 1, 2021, a revolutionary change awaits car drivers on Czech toll motorway sections! The era of gluing paper highway coupons is coming to an end. These will be replaced by a new electronic motorway toll. You can buy it online, in a network of points of sale or through self-service kiosks.

Its price remains the same as before.

The electronic motorway stamp will completely replace the paper highway coupons used so far. It will be tied to a specific license plate and you can simply buy it in an e-shop, a network of points of sale or a self-service kiosk. It will work on the principle of video license plate control. The Police of the Czech Republic and the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic will have at their disposal the technology with which they will immediately obtain an overview of whether a particular vehicle has a valid electronic motorway stamp or is exempt from the obligation to have it.

We will switch from paper to electronic motorway signs exactly on 1 January 2021. The e-shop will start a month in advance. You will not lose the opportunity to buy a practical gift for Christmas in the form of an electronic highway sign. The validity of paper motorway coupons for 2020 will traditionally end on 31 January 2021, so drivers will have to have a new electronic motorway stamp from 1 February 2021. As before, three types will be available – annual, 30-day and 10-day.
