When will it be introduced?

Dart Charge will be introduced at 6am on Sunday, November 30

How will I pay?

From November 30 you will be able to make one-off payments online at www.gov.uk/dart-charge, by phone on 0300 300 0120, by post to PO Box 842, Leeds, LS1 9QF, or at Payzone retail outlets

Alternatively, you can set up a pre-pay account and get savings of up to a third on every crossing made during the charging hours (6am–10pm) from November.

What happens if I already have an account with DART-Tag?

There is no need to set up a new account– you will be sent personalised instructions telling you how you can transfer to Dart Charge.

I don’t want an account, when can I pay for an individual crossing?

You will be able to make one-off payments from November 30; the day the new charging services go live.

When do I need to pay the charge?

The charging hours are between 6am -10pm every day. It will still be free to use the Crossing between 10pm and 6am.

If you don’t set up a Dart Charge account you will need to pay the charge in advance or by midnight the following day for every crossing you make within the charging hours (6am – 10pm) after November 30

What happens if I don’t pay?

If you do not pay by midnight on the day after your crossing, you will face a penalty.
