About vehicle classes
Vehicle class is a classification for vehicles that's determined by certain attributes, such as:
- Vehicle size

- Construction design
Whether the vehicle is used for personal or commercial use does not influence the vehicle class.
Vehicle class and the distance you travel determine the tolls you pay.
