LEZ registration: recognised caregiver with social benefits

Apply for authorisation for your vehicle as a recognised caregiver with a social benefit for a person who needs care in the LEZ

What is it about?  

Are you a recognised caregiver with social benefits caring for a person in need of care who lives in the LEZ, or do you live in the LEZ yourself?  Then you can register your vehicle that is not authorised for the LEZ, free of charge. The registration is valid from 27 April 2024 at the earliest.   

The registration is valid as long as your recognition is valid, with a maximum of 5 years. 

How much does it cost?  

The registration is free.   

What do you need?  


  • Certificate that you are a caregiver with social benefits, issued by the mutual insurance company  

If you do not live in the LEZ yourself:  

  • Indication of the care receiver's address on your certificate 

What do you need to do?  

Would you prefer us to arrange an appointment for you? Then call 09 210 10 30. 

Register your vehicle no later than 1 day after you entered the low-emission zone. That way, you will avoid a fine. 

Please note: The decision on your application is not final until you receive confirmation. The processing of your application may take up to 14 days. If you enter the low-emission zone in Ghent before receiving confirmation, you do so at your own risk. If your application is subsequently rejected, you may receive a fine. It is therefore best to register in advance.
