The validity of an already purchased e-vignette can be checked on the bgtoll.bg website. From the Check Vignette button, by entering the car registration number and the country in which it is registered, anyone can receive deadline information, regardless of where it was purchased - from the Road Infrastructure Agency's commercial premises or at the commercial AIP partners network. The status may be 'active', 'expired' or 'unused' in cases where the vignette is purchased with a delayed start of up to 30 days starting date of validity.
Car owners who have e-vignettes issued through the Social Assistance Agency can check their validity on the RIA website - https://social.api.bg. The button is named "Checking e-vignette issued through the Social Assistance Agency". The information about the period of annual free vignette will appear after entering the vehicle registration number, BNT reported.
