When you are driving a motor vehicle on public roads in Luxembourg in winter conditions, the vehicle must be equipped with winter tyres or all-weather tyres.
Winter weather conditions include:
Authorised winter tyres are marked 'M.S.', 'M+S', 'M&S', or bearing the alpine symbol - a drawing of a mountain with a snowflake.
It is mandatory to fit 4 tyres of the same type on the car.
For lorries, coaches and buses, winter tyres must be on all drive axles. The same applies to motor homes with a maximum authorised mass exceeding 3,500 kg.
In the event of non-compliance with this measure, you will be fined EUR 74 .
If the vehicle must undergo a technical inspection during the winter season, the rims and/or tyres may be subjected to an acceptance procedure, especially if their dimensions do not match those listed on the vehicle's certificate of conformity. It is therefore advisable to always carry the technical documents relating to mounted rims and/or tyres.
The Betriber & Emwelt platform has made available a section dedicated to the Commodo procedures on their website.
In collaboration with LIST, the Chamber of Trades and Crafts is organising an information session and a speed dating event on the Commodo procedure for the uninitiated.
