The British Government have confirmed that a new, reformed, HGV levy will be collected from 1st August 2023 following the three-year suspension period.
A truck toll is applied in the form of the HGV* Road User Levy (a time-based vignette) for the use of all public roads in the United Kingdom. Foreign trucks from 12t permissible total weight are subject to the levy.
The level of the levy is determined by:
- Type of vehicle**
- Total weight and
- Axle configuration.
The levy must be paid BEFORE entry to the United Kingdom. In addition, the M6toll (PDF) can be settled quickly and easily using your DKV CARD.
*HGV = Heavy goods vehicle (“truck”)
** Four sub-categories: Truck, truck with trailer over 4,000 kg, tractor with two axles, tractor with three or more axles
Online registration with the levy operator is required using the Internet – toll booking. At the terminals by entering the vehicle details and paying with the DKV CARD.
