    Checked all my documentation and cannot find anywhere it mentions Euro V. For purpose of getting a Gobox in Austria how can I prove it is a Euro V.

    Try this:

    https://lowemissionzone.tfl.gov.uk/b/pb/lezComplianceProvideVRM.faces?referrer=lez

    I think it told me what classification my van is.

    Or off your vehicle's age:
    • Euro 1 (1993):
      • For passenger cars - 91/441/EEC.[8]
      • Also for passenger cars and light trucks - 93/59/EEC.
    • Euro 2 (1996) for passenger cars - 94/12/EC (& 96/69/EC)
      • For motorcycle - 2002/51/EC (row A)[9] - 2006/120/EC
    • Euro 3 (2000) for any vehicle - 98/69/EC[10]
      • For motorcycle - 2002/51/EC (row B)[9] - 2006/120/EC
    • Euro 4 (2005) for any vehicle - 98/69/EC (& 2002/80/EC)
    • Euro 5 (2008/9) and Euro 6 (2014) for light passenger and commercial vehicles - 715/2007/EC[11]

    Thankyou for your reply. I know the vehicle is Euro V as it has the new dash and also was registered new in 2012. I just wanted to know if EURO V was actually on some document I dont have. Perhaps they know by the Vin or Exhaust Emissions as noted on the V5c

    The use of a "Go-Box" in Austria will work out to be very expensive. Is your vehicle over 3.5 te?
    Do you really need to use the autobahn system?

    A "Go-Box" is only necessary if you answer "Yes" to both of the questions.

    When we had a heavy (5 te) Hymer we visited Austria several times and easily avoided the autobahn system.

    I dont this can be trusted... Fiat Ducato. Euro V did not come out until late 2011.. My van was built December 2011 and there were just starting to come through then..

    For info.
    I know this thread is about Go box but watch out Ref the LEZ, your gross weight makes a difference..
    My 2005 van was plated over 3500kg and did not qualify, however the same base vehicle plated under 3500kg did qualify..

    TM59. yes, Euro , Fiats have a black dash, you should also have a Certificate of conformity and the Euro status is listed on there..

    Hi

    We also have a Euro 5 2012 vehicle but like you I cannot find on any of the documentation we have a confirmation of Euro 5.

    We have had since new and I have not lost any documentation.

    Hi TM59, if travelling on A8 there's a services at Samerberg, N47°48'06" E12°10'32", Take your V5 in the service stn the guy in there speaks good English and will give you what you need,
    As Pilote 87 said it is expensive,

    Those dates are when that spec was introduced, not when the manufacturers introduced them, my Transit which was ordered in July 2011 as a 200ps Euro 4 got cancelled & reordered as a 155ps Euro 5 as the manufacturing changeover date for Ford was around Sept/Oct 2011

    The difference, I discovered, is dependent on wether your vehicle is classed HGV or LGV. HGVs were required to be euro V/5 in October 2009, LGVs in January 2012. These are dates of first registration

    Yes the vehicle is over 3.5 and yes I want the option to use the autobahn. I know the vehicle is Euro V. I just would like some paperwork to prove it if asked. Vehicle registered new july 2012.

    TM59 you dont need to prove you engine is euro v for the go box as it is based on weight of vehicle

    My Rapido 52 part C of C, confirms the Euro classification on line 47, it is Euro5 and it was built on 12/10/2011.
    I understand that all CofCs are the same format, (52Part ).
    If you do not have the original CofC, you can get a copy from the builder, mine cost 100 euro (dealer paid) and took six weeks to be delivered.
    Extracts of my CofC in links below (I hope)

    I second this, we are 4.05 tonnes, and elected not to use the motorway system in Austria, negating all the red tape and expense of a go-box.
    Austria is a beautiful country, on the back roads you get to see more of it(y)
