DKV adds support for new Slovenian toll system DarsGo to its solution portfolio

Slovenia moves to a gateless toll system from 01.04.2018 / DKV offers easy, quick registration and invoicing

Noordwijkerhout, 30.11.2017. DKV will offer customers full support during and following the introduction of the new Slovenian toll system DarsGo. DKV also takes care of the toll payment settlemens for its customers. As per today, customers can register for the new toll system through the DKV website. Following this DKV will register the vehicles with toll operator DARS and ensures DARS will sent the post-pay on-board units free of charge to any EU delivery address. Customers can also opt to collect the on-board units from a local DARS customer service point. DKV recommends customers to register and obtain their OBUs quickly in order to avoid delivery bottlenecks and long queues when the toll starts.

Slovenia is switching to a new toll system on 1 April 2018. From that date, access to toll routes will no longer be regulated by toll gates but by the gateless toll system DarsGo. Every vehicle above 3.5 tonnes permitted total weight will require a vehicle-specific toll box (OBU) and must be registered for the new toll system. The DARS cards and ABC toll boxes used up to now will no longer be valid.

A handling fee of EUR 10 is charged for each new on-board unit (no rental or service fees). There are no security deposits. However, the toll box remains the property of the toll operator DARS. Every on-board unit is vehicle-specific; the number of axles is set manually – as with the GO-Box in Austria and the new DKV BOX EUROPE.
