RUC Calculator

 

Estimate your RUC charges based on the configuration of your vehicle and fleet. Please make sure that all sections are filled out correctly if you wish to compare the two options available for vehicles operating with an overweight permit.

More information about RUC vehicle types and charges can be found on the MoT website.

 

Distance Licence: Every vehicle, powered or unpowered, needs to have a Distance Licence, with the exception of a powered vehicle for a high productivity combination.
Monthly Distance Estimate: km
RUC Type Weight Bands Monthly Cost Cost / Km
Truck (Tractor): $ $
Leading Trailer: $ $
Second Trailer: $ $
Max Weight: $ $
H Distance Licence: Vehicles operating with an overweight permit will be required to purchase additional RUC for the additional weight carried. There are two options available to operators in this situation. Under the first option vehicles that are used regularly to carry overweight loads can have a special "H vehicle" type licence for the powered vehicle. This will enable them to carry weights up to the maximum under a high productivity vehicle permit at all times. H vehicle type distance licences are to be used in combination with the appropriate distance licence for the related trailers.
Powered Vehicles: H Distance Licence
Unpowered Vehicles: Distance Licence

Additional Licence: The second option provides for vehicles operating on an overweight permit that only operate overweight occasionally, or carry varying overweight loads. These vehicles can purchase Additional RUC licences as required to cover specific journeys for the additional weight, and are in addition to the Distance licence. Additional Licences are purchased against the powered vehicle and used in combination with the appropriate Distance Licence for all the combination vehicles. The Additional Licence cannot be purchased in combination with an H Distance Licence.
