Vehicles with EURO 4-6 standards may enter the zone, but must register with the City of Prague in advance. Entry without prior registration will result in heavy fines. Different rules apply to buses.

Green-Zones offers its registration service (for trucks) for the Prague 1 environmental zone and issues a Green-Zones REG-Certificate for the vehicle to be registered.

The registration certificate is not an official badge/vignette.
