What should you watch for when driving in Great Britain?
Are there tolls in Great Britain? Technically, yes. Although there is no national toll network, it is compulsory for heavy goods vehicles registered abroad to pay for access to the UK road network. This type of toll collection is therefore similar to the Eurovignette countries. The corresponding booking portal can be found here.
Additionally, different regulations apply to traffic routes and zones in Great Britain.
The government has confirmed that from August 1, 2023, a new, reformed HGV levy will be made following the expiry of the three-year suspension. The new levy was reformed to reflect the environmental performance of the vehicle. The Government remains committed to ensuring that the levy applies to all HGVs over 12 tonnes using the UK road network.
Beginning June 5, 2023 you will be able to charge the levy with your UTA Card, when the digital service will be available on GOV.UK.
Therefore, it is important that you comply with the toll before entering the country.
