Toll Information for Florida

TOLL VIOLATION OR USED THE WRONG LANE?

Cameras take a picture of your license tag as you go through a toll lane. If we do not receive a signal from a transponder, and cannot match your license plate to an active account, an unpaid toll notice will be mailed at the address of the owner of the vehicle on file with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in compliance with Florida Statute. Failure to comply with the unpaid toll notice may result in the issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation.

Missed a toll and are a Sunpass account holder

If you receive an Unpaid Toll Notice or a Uniform Traffic Citation in the mail, please call Sunpass immediately at 888-824-8655 and ask to speak to the violations enforcement section. Please have the UTN or UTC number available.

Missed a toll but not a Sunpass account holder

If you are not a Sunpass, E-Pass, LeeWay or former O-Pass account holder and find yourself in an unattended, dedicated Sunpass lane, please continue through the toll plaza. Do not stop and back up, as it is unsafe.

Mail toll payments or toll violation payments within ten (10) days to the following address, making certain to include vehicle information, including your license plate number:

Florida's Turnpike Enterprise
P.O. Box 310
Ocoee, FL, 34761

To check on the status of a payment, call 407-264-3164.

REMEMBER: Payment for the toll is still required.

Florida and E-ZPass

Florida is NOT on the E-ZPass electronic toll collection network. You may get a Sunpass, which is Florida's electronic toll system.

Transponders displaying the E-ZPass or IPass logo will not work in Florida.

Counting Axles

toll classes

This graphic provides general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle. See the information below for detailed information for Florida.

Tolls and Vehicle Classes

Any driver that uses a toll road in Florida is expected to pay the toll for that roadway. In Florida, the tolls are set by Florida's Turnpike Enterprise and the Turpike Operations Center in Ocoee, Florida.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is simple in Florida. Tolls are calculated based on the number of axles your vehicle has. Any trailers that are towed behind your vehicle will also have the axles counted, so when you count the axles on your vehicle, be certain to add the number of axles on the vehicle and the trailer to get your total.

Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count two axles for the motorcycle, plus the number of axles on the trailer, to get a total.

Axle Classes

  • 2-Axle class includes a car, van, SUV, motorcycle or pickup truck
  • 3-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 4-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 5-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 6-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 7-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer
  • 8-Axle class includes the axles on the vehicle plus any trailer

In Florida, there is no class of vehicle higher that the 8-Axle class. If you have nine or more axles, use the 8-Axle Class.

PAYING TOLLS IN FLORIDA

CASH PAYMENT SYSTEM

The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient funds to pay for your tolls while driving on Florida's Turnpike.

If you do not have enough cash, you may NOT use a credit card or debit card.

If you are unable to pay your toll, you will receive a ticket for the amount of the unpaid toll, plus an administrative fine.

SUNPASS ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS

SunPass is Florida's version of the E-ZPass. Florida is not part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may NOT use an E-ZPass on Florida's Turnpike. There are two types of Sunpass prepaid devices: A full-size transponder that uses suction cups to stick to your vehicle's window, and the Sunpass Mini, which is a small transponder sticker that attaches to your windshield.

The Sunpass Mini is the least expensive of the two devices, costing only about five dollars. You may order a delivery of your Sunpass Mini from TurnpikeInfo.com. We do not deliver the full size transponders.

The cost of ordering a Sunpass Mini is $6.99 for the transponder sticker, plus $4.99 for the handling and delivery charges.

TOLL-BY-PLATE

Toll-By-Plate system is in place on the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike, where cash tolls are no longer accepted. The price of the Pay-by-plate system is the same as paying with cash, but there is also a $2.50 administrative fee added to your toll charges.

When you use the HEFT, and you do not have a SunPass, your vehicle will be photographed as you go through toll plazas. The registered owner of the car will receive a bill in the mail each month. Failure to pay the bill will result in fines and penalties.

You may sign up for a monthly pre-paid Toll-By-Plate by going to tollbyplate.com and registering your car.

TICKET SYSTEM

Florida's Turnpike uses a ticket system between the Treasure Coast and the Orlando Metropolitan Area. The primary reason for using toll tickets in this area is the sparse population and lack of exits between the Treasure Coast and Kissimmee/St. Cloud, at the south end of the Orlando Metro area.

The ticket system requires you pay a toll using cash or with a Sunpass. Toll-By-Plate is not permitted in this area.
