Viapass Kilometer Charge for HGVs
of +3.5 tons since April 1st 2016

Since April 1 2016, the Kilometer Charge applies for HGVs of over 3.5 tons and for N1 trucks with body code BC. All these trucks need to be equipped with an On Board Unit that is constantly switched-on when they drive on public roads. This OBU will only charge the kilometers driven on paying toll roads.

On this website you will find all information on the the Kilometer Charge and answers on questions like:

Whom is the Kilometer Charge meant for? »

Where do I find the tariffs and maps of the toll roads? »

The correct use of the On Board Unit is being monitored, and fraud or non-use will be fined.

Important: VIAPASS is the supervising and coordinating public organisation for the Kilometer Charge. If you have specific technical questions about your OBU or your bills, you need to contact your service provider, not VIAPASS.

Kilometer charge: what will change on January 1st

Brussels, December 7, 2023 – From Monday January 1, 2024, the following elements will be changed in the kilometer charging system: In Flanders, the tariff for 686 km of roads will go from zero to a normal tariff. A preferential rate of zero cents/km will be granted to zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) across the entire Flemish road network. However, the OBU remains mandatory for ZEVs. In the Brussels-Capital Region and Wallonia (Sofico), ZEVs will still be classified in the EURO VI emission category. In Wallonia (Sofico structuring network), the kilometer charge rates will be indexed. In Flanders and the Brussels-Capital Region, indexation will take place on July 1.

Indexation of the kilometer charge in Wallonia on Jan. 1, 2024

The Board of Directors of SOFICO (Société wallonne de financement complémentaire des infrastructures) has approved a  tariff adjustment of the kilometer charge for Heavy Goods Vehicles in Wallonia. It will take effect on Jan. 1, 2024. The index adjustment is calculated based on the August 2023 consumer price index, thus following the price fluctuations of products and services in Belgium. The average index adjustment on January 2024 is +4.08%. The new kilometer tax rates thus absorb the price increase in material costs and labor in Belgium. Both are key components in the maintenance and repair of road infrastructure.
