Abu Dhabi toll: You don't have to register your Dubai vehicles if...
Toll charges come into effect starting today.
The Integrated Transport Centre of Abu Dhabi last week clarified that unregistered vehicles will not be fined if they pass through the toll gates during non-peak hours.
In December 2019, the department announced that a toll of Dh4 will be charged only during peak hours of 7am to 9am, and 5pm to 7pm, and vehicles passing through the gates during any other time of the day won't have to pay tolls. Prior to that, it had been announced that a toll of Dh2 would be charged during non-peak hours.
According to the Al Ittihad newspaper, the department has said that vehicles that haven't registered for the toll system won't be fined for passing through the toll gates during off-peak hours. All vehicles passing through the toll gates during peak hours have to be mandatorily registered on the ITC website. Registration costs Dh100, of which Dh50 is transferred back to the motorist's account for toll charges.
So if you live in any other emirate apart from Abu Dhabi and are unable to register your vehicle for the toll, it's best you avoid passing through the gates during peak hours.
The toll gates came into operation earlier this year, but toll charges come into effect only from January 2, 2020 onwards.
