Driving a motor vehicle on public roads in Luxembourg in winter conditions (black ice, packed snow, slush, ice sheets or frost) is permitted only with authorised winter tyres (winter tyres or all-weather tyres marked "M.S.", "M+S", "M&S" or the alpine symbol) mounted on all wheels of the vehicle.
With the exception of parked vehicles on public roads, these rules apply to all drivers: residents, cross-border workers, drivers transiting through the country, etc. In the case of non-compliance, they will by sanctioned with a fine of EUR 74.
For lorries, coaches and buses, winter tyres must be on all driving axles. The same applies to motor homes with a maximum authorised mass exceeding 3,500 kg.
This requirement does not apply to mopeds, motorcycles, tricycles, lightweight quadricycles, quadricycles, tractors and self-propelled machinery. It is also not applicable to certain categories of vehicles, provided that winter tyres do not exist by design for these categories, namely:
There is no official "start" or "end date" for winter. Driving with winter tyres is only required if weather and road conditions call for it. It is mandatory to mount 4 tyres of the same type on the car.
