The Highway Code in the Czech Republic is basically the same as in other European countries. However, the following should be kept in mind:
  • - drive on the right side
  • - safety belts must be fastened both in and outside towns and villages
  • - car safety seats are obligatory for children up to 36 kg or 150 cm
  • - maximum speed for passenger vehicles is 90 kmph, in towns and villages 50 kmph, and 130 kmph on motorways
  • - to drive under the influence of alcohol is prohibited
  • - motor vehicles must be alight also in the day-time
  • - for driving on highway the toll sticker must be applied. The appropriate special stick-on label can be bought at border crossings, post offices or fuel stations
Price of highway toll stickers in CZK:
vehicle up to 3,5 t
- 1 year: 1 500 CZK
- 1 month: 440 CZK

The toll has been established for the vehicles above 3,5 tons. The obligation of these vehicles to have a time sticker (highway toll sticker) stuck on the windscreen has been abolished and replaced by the electronic withdrawal. For details see www.mytocz.cz
