Crit’Air (Air Quality stickers)

“By” 2025 Limoges will introduce low emission zones, and you will be required to display a “Clean Air” sticker in your car to enter the zone.  Unlike London’s low emission zone, there is a one off payment (currently around 4€ including postage) for a sticker that lasts the lifetime of your car, so it is well worth investing in one in advance – just in case you happen to drive into a zone without knowing. 

Paris is already using this scheme, but if you are driving to us from the ports, other cities introducing the scheme by 2025 include: Le Havre / Caen / Le Mans / Bordeaux / Orleans

The official website lets you switch easily between EN / FR and French / Foreign registered vehicles.
