For several years now, the Spanish car fleet has been divided into categories that correspond to the various labels of the Directorate General of Traffic. Each of them gives certain benefits or supposes certain limitations, so it is clear that one of the key vehicle must have. And injecting the DGT barrier is very simple.
What label does the car have?
All you have to do is go to the electronic headquarters, specifically to the section “vehicles” and within this in “Request your vehicle’s environmental label”. Once there, all you have to do is enter the car’s license plate and the system will indicate which title corresponds to it.
DGT environmental label
Now the vehicles are placed in five categories, the first without a label, for the oldest, and four, which include models from the dirtiest to the least;
The importance of the DGT barrier
One or the other title implies that the vehicle has certain advantages, such as parking in restricted or free parking areas (SER), or limitations, such as access to low emission zones (ZBE).
Today, twelve cities already have LEZs, including Barcelona, Spain, Madrid, Pamplona, Pontevedra and Córdoba. Some are very restrictive and only allow full freedom for models with Zero and ECO labels.
The situation has changed in 2023, when all Spanish municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants must have their own ZBE by law, so the restrictions will affect the number of drivers.
Of course, each Vatican Council will decide what level of restrictions will be made, so they can choose to leave all the vehicles that do not exist, or be more flexible and allow the circulation of all that have a label. to be that kind.
