The Metropolitan register (Metropolitan Register of Foreign Vehicles and other Authorised Vehicles) is a service for the processing of permits for vehicles to drive within the restricted area of ZBE (low emissions zones) of the metropolis Barcelona, according to the regulations in force.
If you own a vehicle that does not have an environmental label, or if you own a foreign-registered vehicle, the service enables you to obtain information about, apply for and manage — mainly through digital means — the different types of permits to drive in the restricted area.
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.
Once your application has been accepted, you can activate and pay the single-day permits from the user area on the registration website. A single-day permit can be activated up until 11.59 pm on the day before. You can also request and pay single-day permits at any post office (Correos), with the correponding management cost.
Exceptionally, single-day permits can be requested in person (by prior appointment) at the metropolitan Citizen Attention Office (OAC).
The following vehicles may obtain a VPRM authorisation: vehicles for persons with reduced mobility and vehicles for collective transport for persons with reduced mobility.
You need to request inclusion in the ZBE Register of Authorisations only once. To do this, the owner of the vehicle must submit an application form to the Metropolitan Register.
