    If you travelled on a Melbourne toll road more than 7 days ago and don’t have an account or pass, you should receive a toll invoice in the mail. It can take up to 4 weeks after you travel for a toll invoice to be sent.

    Toll invoices are issued to the registered owner of the vehicle and will include the cost of your tolls plus additional fees.

  • How do I avoid getting another toll invoice in the future?

    How do I avoid getting another toll invoice in the future?

    Avoiding toll invoices is easy. All you need to do is make sure you have a valid pass or an active Linkt account.

    If you don't have an account

    If you don't have a Linkt account, you'll need to buy a pass. If you're a frequent user of toll roads, you should consider opening an account.

    If you have an account

    Avoid toll invoices by making sure your Linkt account is active. You can do this by logging in to your account. It's also important to pay attention to the beeping sounds made by your tag as you pass through toll points. Learn more about tag beeps.

    If your account is suspended, you'll need to make the necessary payment before travelling on CityLink. If you travel while your account is suspended, you may receive a toll invoice.

    It's also important to make sure your vehicle information and payment details are up to date. You can do this by logging in to your account.

  • I wasn't driving the vehicle at the time of travel

    I wasn't driving the vehicle at the time of travel

    If you've received a toll invoice for a vehicle you've sold, or you weren't driving the vehicle when the toll was incurred, you can transfer it to the correct person. This is called a toll invoice nomination.

    If the other driver is responsible for all the trips listed on the invoice, you can complete the nomination online.

    If there are multiple trips listed and the other driver isn't responsible for all of them, you'll need to contact our customer care team and they'll do it over the phone.

    Keep in mind a toll invoice can only be transferred twice. 

  • What is my vehicle class?

    What is my vehicle class?

    The class of your vehicle, along with the distance you travel, determines the tolls you pay. It is important to know that vehicle class is determined by certain physical attributes such as vehicle size, seating capacity, construction design, weight/mass. Whether the vehicle is used for personal or commercial use does not determine the vehicle class.

    Motorcycle


    • A two-wheeled motor vehicle, includes motor vehicles with a trailer or side-car.

    Heavy Commercial Vehicle (HCV)


    • Any two axle rigid vehicle with a cab chassis construction, with a gross vehicle mass that is greater than 4.5 tonnes
    • Any rigid vehicle with three or more axles and a cab chassis construction that exceeds 1.5 tonnes
    • An articulated truck
    • A bus seating more than 12 people.

    Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV)

    • Any two axle rigid vehicle with a cab chassis construction, with a gross vehicle mass that is greater than 1.5 tonnes but less than 4.5 tonnes.

    Car


    • A car is any motor vehicle, including if towing a trailer or caravan, that is not a:
      • Motorcycle
      • Light Commercial Vehicle
      • Heavy Commercial Vehicle

     

    Vehicle classes on Melbourne's toll roads are set out in the contracts both CityLink and EastLink have with the Victorian Government and are determined based on each vehicle's size, weight and configuration. These classes, first established for CityLink in the mid-1990s, are consistent across both motorways.

  • I have an account but I received a toll invoice or notice

    I have an account but I received a toll invoice or notice

    You may have received a toll invoice or notice if:

    • you were driving a car that hasn't been added to your account
    • your account was suspended at the time of travel
    • your tag is faulty or incorrectly installed
       

    Your account may have been suspended if:

    • you didn't made a payment by the due date
    • an auto payment failed

    To avoid toll invoices or notices, make sure your account is always topped up and active. If your account balance is low, your tag will beep 3 times as it passes through a toll point. You can check or update your payment details by logging in to your account.

    If you have a Commercial account, make sure you pay your monthly statement by the due date to avoid having your account suspended.
