The yellow light came on when I went through the toll. What should I do?

Start by checking if you have any alerts in My Via Verde > Message Centre, through the website or Via Verde App, and following the instructions provided there.

If there is no alert in your account area, please check the following:

1. Your transponder is properly associated with a credit card.

2. The registration associated with the vehicle in question is correct/up-to-date. You can check or change the vehicle registration associated with the transponder at My Via Verde > Vehicle and Transponders. See all the steps to change the associated vehicle registration in this video.

3. The transponder is properly attached to the windscreen of your vehicle, or, for motorcycles, in the pouch provided. Learn the steps for correctly attaching the Tag to vehicles or motorcycles in "How do I attach the transponder to my vehicle?"​​​​​​

How do I attach the transponder to my vehicle?

For technical reasons, the transponder must be installed on the inside of the windscreen. This is the ideal position between the transponder and the antenna to ensure a correct transaction.

Athermic windscreen

Some vehicles have athermic windscreens, to prevent heat entering. For this purpose there is a black perforated area, next to the rear view mirror, and the tag must be placed inside that area.

Heavy vehicles

The transponder should be attached to the lower vertical part of the inside of the windscreen.


On motorcycles, the transponder should be placed inside a pouch provided by Via Verde on signing up.

We recommend using the pouch on the left arm, above the elbow. Alternatively, you can use it on your wrist or on the handlebar of your bike.

The transponder must be placed inside the pouch, with the self-adhesive tab facing outwards.

Using the transponder in your hand is contrary to driving safety regulations.

If in doubt, contact the vehicle maker to clarify the correct positioning of the transponder.

Is it possible to change the associated vehicle to a different class?

To change the vehicle class, exclusive in the Go Toll plan, simply access the reserved area at Veículos e Identificadores

Is there no on-board unit required on the Go Toll plan?

I subscribed the Go Toll plan. When can I use Via Verde?

Your trips will be processed via a photograph of the car registration number you indicated at the time of signing up. This processing may take a few days.

I subscribed the Go Toll plan. Is it normal to see the yellow light when passing the Via Verde toll barrier?

Yes. When signing up this modality, it is expected that you will see the yellow light when passing on the Via Verde.
