Cash Payment System

The cash payment system speaks for itself. When you pay by cash, you are responsible for having sufficient cash funds to pay for your tolls while driving on West Virginia toll roads.

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

West Virginia E-ZPass

West Virginia is part of the E-ZPass system; therefore, you may use an E-ZPass on toll roads in West Virginia. Any transponder that displays the E-ZPass or IPass logo will be accepted in West Virginia.

E-ZPass Compatibility

If you have an E-ZPass issued in another state, or an IPass issued by Illinois, you may use E-ZPass lanes in West Virginia.

All E-ZPass holders will get a discounted toll rate, in most cases, in West Virginia. However, for the maximum discount, a West Virginia E-ZPass is required.

Make certain you have sufficient funds on your E-ZPass account to pay for the toll charges you will incur; otherwise, it will count as a toll violation.

Counting Axles

counting axles quick reference

This graphic provides general information about how to count the number of axles on your vehicle in most states. See the information below for detailed information for West Virginia.

About Vehicle Classes

The classification system is a bit more complex in West Virginia than other states, though the system is still easy to understand. Tolls are calculated based on the type of vehicle you are driving, the height of the vehicle, and the number of axles on your vehicle.

West Virginia breaks down the personal vehicle classes into four main groups: personal vechicles, personal vechicles with a trailer, motor homes or recreational vehicles, and motorhomes/RVs with a trailer.

Commercial vechicles also have their own class designations. Typically, box trucks and larger trucks, over seven feet, six inches in height, are bumped to the higher vehicle classes.

Motorcycles count as a car, including motorcycles with a sidecar. Motorcycles with a trailer would count as a vehicle-with-trailer class.

Please see the guide below for a full understanding of the classes.

Classes

  • Class 1: Car, SUV, pickup, van, motorocycle (maximum two axles / four tires / under 7'6")
  • Class 2: Car, SUV, pickup, van, motorocycle (three or more axles / under 7'6")
  • Class 3: Motor home (two or three axles)
  • Class 4: Motor home with a trailer (three or more axles)
  • Class 5: 2-axle trucks, box trucks (over 7'6")
  • Class 6: 3-axle trucks, w/ or w/o trailer (over 7'6")
  • Class 7: 4-axle trucks, w/ or w/o trailer (over 7'6")
