All the Belgian motorways except Liefkenshoek tunnel near Antwerp are free for motorbikes, passenger cars, and other vehicles with a total weight of up to 3.5 tonnes. Most of the toll roads in Belgium have a 0 (zero) tariff for vehicles with a total weight exceeding 3.5 tonnes. The Belgium Government introduced their HGV Transit Toll, (also called the Belgian Kilometre charging system) from 1st April 2016, replacing the Eurovignette system. The government fixes toll tariffs on toll roads and Viapass supervises the Belgium toll road system.
Belgium truck toll and HGV toll
Trucks, HGV, and vehicles with Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) exceeding 3.5 tonnes of weight and N1 category vehicles with a body code BC - semi-trailer tractors of 3.5 tons or less - are liable to pay tolls in Belgium. To pay tolls in Belgium, one must have an On Board Unit (OBU) that is constantly switched on (shows a green light).
Toll tariffs in Belgium depend on:
- The maximum permissible weight.
- The emission class of the vehicle.
- The region of travel (Wallonia, Flanders, Brussels highway, and Brussels urban area).
- The distance traveled (in kilometers) on the tolled road.
Vignettes are no longer accepted in Belgium.
If you are coming from another country, you must have an OBU installed before you start driving in Belgian roads.
