A toll road requires motorists by law to pay a fee known as a 'toll' to drive on that road or motorway.
In Australia, all toll roads are electronically tolled. There are no cash tollbooths.
By setting up an electronic Tag or Pass Account you can drive through toll collection points without stopping and your toll will be automatically charged to your Account. You can set up a pass up to 30 days before you travel or up to 3 days after you travel on a NSW toll road.

- Sydney Harbour Bridge
- Sydney Harbour Tunnel
- Hills M2 Motorway
- M5 South-West Motorway

A Tag is a physical product that is fitted to the windscreen of your car. Your Tag will beep as you drive through the toll collection point and will automatically deduct the toll charge from your Tag Account. All Australian issued electronic Tags will work on all Australian toll roads.
We offer two Tag products, the E-Toll Tag and the Easy Toll Tag. These Tag products are most suitable if you are a regular user of toll roads.
We have one casual travel Pass called eMU (Electronic Motorway User) Pass. Our eMU Pass is a 'virtual' tolling product that links your vehicle's Licence Plate to the Pass, allowing you to pay for travel on Sydney toll roads for up to 30 days. When you drive through the toll collection point your vehicle's Licence Plate will be photographed and matched to your Pass. You will be charged a Vehicle Matching Fee (for each toll trip) plus the cost of each toll you drive through. The cost of the Vehicle Matching Fee may vary by toll road but is currently $0.75 per trip, the cost of the tolls you use plus the Vehicle Matching Fee will be charged to your nominated Bank Account or credit card. The card you nominate must be valid for at least the next three months after the date you establish the Pass.
Our eMU Pass can be set up 30 days before or up to 3 days after you travel on a Sydney toll road. Find out more. If you also wish to travel in Queensland or Victoria you will need to apply for a temporary Pass arrangement in the State in which you wish to travel.
The type of vehicle you drive will determine the toll you pay on toll roads where class based tolling applies. Currently all Sydney toll roads have class based tolling EXCEPT the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel where a set toll applies. When you set up a Tag or Pass Account you will be asked to specify the type of vehicle (class) you will be using.
|Car or Motorcycle
|For NSW registered vehicles less than 2.8m high, with no more than
|Truck or Bus
|For NSW registered vehicles higher than 2.8m and/or have more than
Note, some toll roads also set a 'Class 3' toll rate for Victorian and Queensland registered light commercial vehicles. Generally these commercial vehicles have dimensions similar to a two axle rigid truck with a gross vehicle mass of between 1.5 tonnes and 4.5 tonnes.
If you are towing another vehicle such as a trailer, caravan or boat you will need to register the Licence Plate and State of Registration for both the vehicle AND the vehicle being towed. The toll charge is applied to the vehicle with an engine unless specified otherwise.
If purchasing a Pass online, you will need to purchase two eMU Passes at a cost of $1.50 each, one for your vehicle and an additional Pass for the vehicle being towed (e.g. caravan or trailer). The total cost will be $3.00.
If purchasing a Pass through a Service NSW Centre or NSW Registry or by phone, the start-up fee is $3.30. This fee will cover both your vehicle and the vehicle you are towing.
If purchasing a Pass from a participating petrol station or retail outlet the cost of $5.95 will cover both your vehicle and the vehicle you are towing.
When you drive through a toll collection point you will be charged only one Vehicle Matching Fee plus the applicable toll charge.
You will need an active Tag correctly mounted on the windscreen of the vehicle You do not need a Tag for a vehicle being towed, but make sure you have your Licence Plate of both the vehicle and the vehicle being towed on your Tag Account.
Note: Ensure you only have one Tag in your vehicle when you travel on toll roads to avoid multiple charges resulting from each Tag being detected.
There are three types of RMS E-Toll Tags. They serve the same purpose and can be used on all Australian toll roads. The Tags are fitted slightly differently and make different sounds when passing through toll points. Click on the Tag fitting sheet or the web video below to see how to fit these Tags correctly in your vehicle.
Which tag do I have?
|Vehicle type||Tag design 1||Tag design 2||Tag design 3|
There are three types of RMS E-Toll Tags with a new model introduced in October 2016. The tag sounds differ depending on which tag you have.
If your tag is working properly, you will hear one of these three sounds as you pass a toll point.

If the Tag is faulty due to low battery or a technical fault, your Tag may be replaced free of charge.

If your Account is in working order and the Tag is faulty you may be eligible to receive a refund of any Vehicle Matching Fees you have incurred.

Financial institutions charge the government merchant fees whenever they provide a payment service.
The NSW Treasury requires all NSW government agencies to recover these additional costs. This process is known as "merchant fee recovery".
In line with the Government's decision to recover credit cards costs, Merchant fees will be passed on for Account payments made by Visa, MasterCard and Amex. Diners Club cards are no longer accepted as a form of payment for RMS E-Toll transactions.
Note 1: Merchant fees do not apply on Direct Debit payments.
Note 2: An eMU Pass does not incur merchant fees
For credit card payments, the merchant fee is a percentage of the total payment amount. The percentage depends on whether the card is a MasterCard, Visa or American Express. The merchant fee including GST will be added to the total amount you need to pay.
When you make a credit or debit payment using a MasterCard or Visa card, the merchant fee recovered is up to 0.44% of the total amount payable.
When you make a payment using an American Express card, the merchant fee recovered is up to 1.54% (currently 1.056%) of the total amount payable.
Yes. You can avoid merchant fees by switching your Account to direct debit. You can also top up your Account by using EFTPOS, cash or cheque at any Service NSW Centre or NSW Registry
