For the sake of public safety, law enforcement and emergency vehicles are exempt from tolls on all state toll roads. According to the German Federal Highway Toll Act (BFStrMg), certain vehicles and vehicle assemblies are exempt from paying the toll. These include vehicles that do not meet the criteria for defining vehicles subject to tolls, as well as those for which the legislature has created special exemptions. The law directly determines whether or not a vehicle is subject to a toll in all cases. It is not necessary for the Federal Office for Logistics and Mobility or Toll Collect to determine this on request.
Vehicles that are identifiable to any of the toll exemptions set out in Article 1, paragraph 2, of the German Federal Highway Toll Act (BFStrmg) are exempt from paying the toll. The registration of vehicles or groups of vehicles does not imply the legal recognition of the toll exemption by Toll Collect or the Federal Office for Logistics and Mobility.
