Drive through Slovakia with UTA

In Slovakia - similar to Czechia - motor vehicles with a gross combined weight of > 3.5 t are subject to tolls on all motorways and expressways, as well as category 1 roads. However, sections of category 2 and 3 roads (corresponding to state and federal roads in Germany) are subject to tolls. Tolls are charged based on kilometres driven and the number of axles, tonnage and emission class.

Vehicles ≤ 3.5 t are subject to a vignette on most sections of motorways D1-4 and on some sections of expressways R1, 2, 4 and 6. Toll-free sections are signposted.

Towing vehicles and trailers are required to have an electronic vignette if their combined weight amounts to > 3.5 t - even if the towing vehicle itself does not exceed this threshold.

As a driver of a vehicle subject to charges in Slovakia, you can get various services related to the SkyToll on-board unit or booking vignettes in a series of sales points.

Collection of Slovakian tolls

How tolls are collected

Open system:

Tolls are collected through an open system consisting of toll portals, GPS-GNS technology and a hybrid on-board unit that communicates using microwaves and satellite technology. A toll box is mandatory for vehicles with a permitted total weight > 3.5. Controls are performed based on DSRC technology.

Vignette system:

A time-based, prepaid toll charge applies to vehicles ≤ 3.5 t. The charge for the vignette is based on the valid period.
