The registration rules for Ghent

When entering the LEZ of Ghent, three registration classes can be distinguished: 2, 3 and 4.
In addition, the city of Ghent has decided that diesel vehicles, which are the most polluting for the environment, are not allowed to enter the LEZ, either by paying an additional charge or purchasing an environmental ticket. For the initial period of 2020 until 2024, this already applies to diesel vehicles, which are not yet as old, and very old petrol vehicles.
All vehicles which meet the following entry requirements for the period of 2020 until 2024, are allowed to enter the LEZ of Ghent.
