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.
See below for additional information about toll classes and paying violations.
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.
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.
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.
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 is Florida's electronic toll system. While it is similar to the E-ZPass network, Florida is not part of the E-ZPass system. 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.
Georgia Peach Pass and the North Carolina Quick Pass are the only non-Florida toll passes that are compatible with the Sunpass system at this time.
Florida is NOT on the E-ZPass electronic toll collection network. Transponders displaying the E-ZPass or IPass logo will not work in Florida.
Toll-By-Plate system is in place on the Homestead Extension of Florida's Turnpike, and on the Florida's Turnpike mainline, south of mile 54 which is the exit for I-595 in Fort Lauderdale / Davie. It is important to note that south of I-595 (MAP), cash is NOT accepted on the turnpike or the extension.
The price of the Toll-By-Plate system is the same as paying with cash; plus, there is 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.
Florida's Turnpike uses a ticket system between the Treasure Coast and the Orlando Metropolitan Area, between mile markers 88 and 236. These areas are marked by the Lantanta Toll Plaza (MAP), on the south end, and the Three Lakes Toll Plaza (MAP) to the north.
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.
Toll-By-Plate is not permitted in this area. The ticket system requires you pay a toll using cash or with a Sunpass ONLY.
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.
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.
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.
