Additional information for drivers in Slovenia

  • for motorways a vignette is mandatory,
  • seat belt use is compulsory in all seats where they are installed,
  • use of dipped headlights is compulsory at all times of day and night,
  • use of fog lamps is permitted only when visibility is reduced to less than 50 meters.
  • obligatory equipment includes a warning triangle, spare set of lights, first aid kit and reflective vest,
  • the maximum permitted blood-alcohol level for drivers is 0.05 percent, on the condition that no ability is impaired. The police may therefore prohibit you from driving even if the alcohol test shows a lower level. They are especially strict with younger drivers. Alcohol tests for drivers are frequent, and the penalties very high, so it is not worth the risk if you have drunk too much.
