  • 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.

    The vehicle classes are:

    Motorcycle:


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

    HCV - Heavy Commercial Vehicle - any:


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

    LCV - Light Commercial Vehicle:

    • 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
      • LCV
      • HCV

     

    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.
