Display of weight classes on the OBU

Berlin, 23 May 2018

As of 1 June 2018, the new weight classes will be visible on the On-Board Units.

On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), Toll Collect has made further developments to the truck toll system and has prepared technically for the expansion of the toll requirement on all federal trunk roads as of 1 July 2018. As part of the further development, it has been made technically possible to differentiate the toll according to additional weight classes.

In contrast to the previous weight classes which differentiated between toll-free vehicles – less than 7.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW) – and vehicles subject to toll – equal to/greater than 7.5 tonnes GVW – the following weight classes will be displayed on the OBUs from 1 June 2018:

  • < 7.5 tonnes
  • ≥ 7.5 tonnes – 11.99 tonnes
  • ≥ 12 tonnes – 18 tonnes
  • > 18 tonnes

The current valid rates can be found at www.toll-collect.de and apply on motorways as well as on federal trunk roads. As they will remain in force until further notice, the incorrect selection and setting of one of the weight classes between 7.5 tonnes and >18 tonnes will not be prosecuted.

The driver’s previous obligations to cooperate remain the same. If a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight under 7.5 tonnes is being driven, the driver must select the “< 7.5 t” setting. If the vehicle has a trailer and is 7.5 tonnes GVW or over, then the driver selects “≥ 7.5 t” and is subject to toll. In addition, the current number of axles still needs to be entered if it deviates from the number of axles personalised on the OBU.

The German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act (BFStrMG) will be adapted as quickly as possible based on the new report on infrastructure costs. This will result in new toll rates and obligations to cooperate. According to the new report on infrastructure costs, the introduction of new weight classes is possible and intended by the legislative authority.
