Toll taxes in Great Britain

The tolling system in the UK was introduced in 2014 and is operated by the government. The road user charge is for heavy goods vehicles weighing 12 tons or more. When calculating the levy (tax), the vehicle’s weight, axle configuration and levy duration are taken into consideration.

• OBU Requirements: No.
• Toll Routes: All highways.

Vehicles subject to levy(tax)

a) UK registered vehicles

Payments are collected by the DVLA. UK registered vehicles pay levy costs at the same time and in the same transaction as vehicle excise duty (VED).

b) Non-UK registered vehicles

Vehicles registered abroad must make tax payments before entering the UK (including Northern Ireland) to use the UK road network. The levy can be paid by day, week, month or year and discounts are available for longer levy periods.
The foreign operator payment system is operated by Northgate Public Services on behalf of the Department for Transport.

* Truckpoint recalls that following the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK Government suspended the collection of vignette fees for heavy goods vehicles (UK HGV Road User Levy) from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021. This means that in this period will not be required to purchase vignettes for the movement of trucks in the country. If you have already ordered a 12-month or 6-month vignette, you can apply for a partial refund for the remaining full months of the vignette removal period.
