The available permits
Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) provides this ZBE permit registration service, enabling users to apply for and manage vehicle permits for driving in the ZBE Rondes de Barcelona.
The Metropolitan register of foreign vehicles and other authorised vehicles is an online tool to provide vehicle owners with a permit to use their vehicles inside the low emission zone (LEZ) of the Barcelona ring roads (ZBE Rondes de Barcelona).
All vehicles exempt from traffic restrictions within the ZBE (vehicles for people with reduced mobility [VPRM], emergency services such as police, firefighters and ambulances, and essential services such as medical and funeral service) regardless of their DGT environmental label, are required to register.
In addition, owner of vehicles wishing to apply for a 24-hour traffic permit, as well as foreign vehicles, with or without official approval, must also register to apply for the relevant traffic permits.
Registration for the ZBE metropolitan permit is a one-off procedure. To register, the owner of the vehicle must send an application form to the Metropolitan register.
After the application has been accepted, you can select the days for your vehicle's permit using the register website until 11.59 pm on the day before.
Until the Metropolitan register becomes operational, there is an option to carry out a pre-registration procedure, which will keep you informed and facilitate subsequent registration.
The following groups are entitled to VPRM permits:
Vehicle for people with reduced mobility: Vehicles owned by people with a level of disability of 33 % or over, and who exceed the mobility threshold. Only one application for this type of permit per applicant will be allowed.
Collective transport for people with reduced mobility: Vehicles adapted to transport people with reduced mobility. They must be registered under the use criteria classification for the vehicle for transporting PRM (use code 01 on the vehicle's technical specifications).
You can register and apply to include the vehicle in the Metropolitan register of foreign vehicles and other authorised vehicles. Until the register's official start date, there is an option to carry out a pre-registration process that will keep you informed and facilitate subsequent processing.
