If you forget to pay the Dart Charge on time, there is a £70 fine, reduced to £35 if paid within a 14 days – if you fail to pay within 28 days, it increases to £105.
Dart Charge exemptions and discounts
There is just the one exemption for paying the Dart Charge, and that is if you are driving a vehicle which is excluded from vehicle tax due to you being disabled. Should this be the case, you do not need to do anything as your vehicle will be checked automatically when making the crossing.
