Requesting an exemption for LZV/EcoCombi

We issue exemptions for long and heavy freight vehicle combinations, called LZV or EcoCombi. The exemption is for a configuration consisting of a towing vehicle, potentially a middle vehicle, and a rear vehicle that comply individually with the statutory dimensions and weights but together are too long or heavy. If you have LZV/EcoCombi exemption, you can drive for 1 year on all the roads that we have indicated for it. After 1 year, you must apply for the exemption again.
  • Conditions

    • Each individual vehicle in your LZV/EcoCombi combination complies with the legally defined dimensions and weights.
    • Each vehicle in your configuration has an LZV/EcoCombi endorsement in the register of licence plates. Foreign-registered vehicles require an exceptional transport certificate. Go to: 'Getting a vehicle approved for LZV/EcoCombi', only available in Dutch. 
    • The configuration of the vehicles is no more than 25.25 metres in length and no more than 60,000 kg in weight.
    • Your driver has a certificate from the CCV permitting them to drive an LZV/EcoCombi vehicle. Foreign driver? This same certificate is still mandatory.
    • To see all the conditions, go to the Policy rules for LZV/EcoCombi page (in Dutch) on overheid.nl. 

    What else you need

    • Make sure that you have a customer number AND the Crosweb certificate for applying for exemptions online. Read: Creating an account for exemptions.
    • If it is not a Dutch-registered vehicle, get a one-time registration for it. We can then see from your VIN what vehicle is involved.
  • If you have received the Crosweb certificate, apply for your exceptional transport exemption online.

  • You have an exemption for LZV/EcoCombi transport. Read your exemption carefully and observe your obligations:

    • You are only allowed to drive on roads that are coloured green on the Digital Road Map for Exemptions (DWO). You can see which roads these are by selecting ‘LZV’.
    • You are required to be able to prove to any inspector that the road you are driving on has been approved for exceptional transport.
    • Check beforehand whether you can genuinely take the route in practice.
     
  • Make sure nothing is in the way

    Before you start driving, check the media and websites of the road authorities for news about potential restrictions on your route. For instance, check the website of the RWS (the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management), vanAnaarBeter.nl. If it transpires that you will not have a clear run, plan your transport at another time or on a different day within the validity period of your exemption.
