Posted: Tuesday 4th August 2020

What is the HGV Road User Levy?

Put simply, this is a charge that you must pay to the government in order to use their highways. The factors that influence this charge are as follows.

  • Weight of Vehicle
  • Number of Axles
  • The duration of the payment.

In 2019 you would expect to pay, for an 8x4 32,000 kg rigid:

12 months: £1,191

6 months: £680.60

What's Changed?

In light of the current global pandemic, the government has enacted a scheme in order to stimulate sales of new vehicles. As of 1st August 2020, the levy has been removed, bringing the total cost down by over 50%!

12 months: £560

6 months: £280
