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
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
