    Sorry if I have missed this item before , but just seen it on a Campsite blog. Apparently easily available from any German car dealer for €5 having showing your V5 to the dealer ?. I own a German van and haven't heard anything from them ?

    That's way over the top Martin, the Berlin office charge €6 including postage or €5 from any car dealer or TUV office.

    Hi Lenny

    I knew there was someplace cheaper but couldn't remember where, I also knew that some charged a lot more than this, thought you would keep me right(y) I think the one I linked has gone up a fair bit since I used it. Can you actually do these stickers at a car dealership as well as TUV test station?

    No it must be a TUV office/test station. Disc only required within some (quite a lot) of towns and cities. Worth getting as it is 1 less thing to worry about.

    Yes any main car dealer.

    Nope, you can go into any main car dealer and get one. Best to do it in Western Germany not the East as I found out their second language is Russian and as my V5 didn't have any emissions on it caused a bit of confusion but I got one it was a Seat car dealer.

    Are we sure about this? Here is the nation who's leading vehicle manufacturer has lied about emissions for years. When does it / did it come into force ? If it were a national scheme it would be neare 50 euro not 5 ? My scam detection ha S been alerted .

    I think you need to turn down the sensitivity of your scam detector;)

    You may well be correct but my attempts at 4 dealerships in Frankfurt got me nowhere except directions to TUV station. With benefit of hindsight I would use web and get it from
    Berlin. Only takes a few days to come through.

    Just noticed that you can get if from a Tuev North and South. Do you need one for the north and another for south or can you just get one for the whole country from either of them?

    Same one covers all of Germany. (Edit Lenny beat me to it!)

    Just to muddy the waters, France is into it now - see Stealaway's pic above.

    Worth getting provided your motorhome is Euro 4 or better. If yours is Euro 3 or worse, don’t bother as hardly any zones now admit yellow (3) or red (2) stickers.

    Do you mean you also need a separate one for France as well?
