Road user charges

The Road User Charge (RUC) applies to each litre of diesel used by heavy vehicles such as buses, coaches and trucks on public roads.

Ministers approved an increase in the RUC by 2.5 per cent per litre to apply in 2021-22. The current RUC is 26.4 cents per litre.

The RUC is set out in the Fuel Tax Act 2006.
