Since 2014, all Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) weighing more than 12 tonnes pay a levy to use United Kingdom roads. While this levy has been suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic, which is responsible for a drop in income since August 2020, £306 million has been raised by foreign registered vehicles. A breakdown of foreign registered vehicle revenue per year is set out below:
