These diesel and petrol cars cannot get stalls in the environmental zones

It doesn't really matter which car you drive around in. Especially not if you have an errand in one of the currently five Danish environmental zones.

There are currently environmental zones in five Danish cities: Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg and Frederiksberg.

However, even more environmental zones may be on the way. Because in February, a majority in Christiansborg allowed all Danish cities to introduce so-called zero-emission zones, where only cars that do not directly emit anything are allowed to drive around.

However, not all cities are on board with that idea. One of the cities that already has an environmental zone, for example, has dropped the idea of a zero-emission zone. Read more about it here.

But even though the grip on especially the diesel cars in the environmental zones was tightened on 1 October 2023, some of the cars still bypass the monitoring and stalls in the zones. And even completely legal.

The rules state that all vintage cars are exempt from the applicable requirements in the environmental zones. And that regardless of whether the car had to run on diesel without being equipped with a particulate filter.

What is a vintage car in the eyes of the authorities is good to write down. Because there are slightly different categories to note.

Because even though a vintage car is only 'genuine' when it reaches 35 years of age, all cars that are registered for the vintage corselle are exempt from the requirements in the environmental zones.

In other words, this means that 30-year-old cars, regardless of fuel and possible lack of particle filter, are allowed to drive around in the environmental zones.

The rule also applies to all cars, i.e. both those with Danish and foreign number plates, according to the Danish Environmental Agency.

Motorists who may still be in doubt as to whether their cars are allowed in the environmental zones can always check in the Environmental Agency's reference work at .

However, the stalls in the environmental zones have also already caused anger. Because the authorities apparently have control over not all cars in Denmark. Read more about it here .
