It is not possible to issue a ro-vignette ealier than 30 days at the most before the date when the ro-vignette validity starts.
The ro-vignettes are issued only after the confirmation of payment of the respective amount in the UNTRR bank account (in a few minutes in case of a finalised online payment by credit card, or a few days in case of payment by payment order).
According to the stipulations of Art. 1 Paragraph 1 Letter J of the Government Ordinance No. 15/2002, approved by the Law No.424/2002, the ro-vignette is defined as being the document or the electronic registration attesting the payment of the tariff for using the Romanian national road network. The design, the shape, the contents of the ro-vignette, the procedure, the terms and the means for issuing the ro-vignettes are set by the methodological norms approved by Order of the Minister of Transports and Infrastructure.
The tariff is structured depending on the duration of using the Romanian national road network (1 day, 30 days, 90 days, 12 months). The period of use includes both the time spent in traffic and the time the vehicle remains stationary.
The tariff set by the Ordinance No.8/2010 is the following:

The responsibility of paying the tariff and of having a valid ro-vignette, as well as that of paying the passing through tariff or of the concession tariff lies solely with the Romanian users, and, in the case of the foreign users, it lies solely with the driver of the motor vehicle.
Driving without having a valid ro-vignette is considered a minor offence and it is punishable by fine.
Apart from the civil fine, the offender must pay, by way of redress, depending on the type of vehicle having been driven without a valid ro-vignette, the amounts set forth in the annex 2 of the Government Emergency Ordinance 15/2002 with the subsequent amendments and additions.
