IMPORTANT: You must wait to receive confirmation from us that your exemption account has been set up and that your nominated vehicle registration number has been added to you account in order to travel being exempt from the toll. You MUST stop at an inspection lane if you have not received confirmation from us that your application has been successful, in order to receive your exemption for that passage. Do NOT drive straight through until you receive this confirmation otherwise you risk receiving an Unpaid Toll Charge Notice (UTCN).
Please read our how-to guide on submitting an application if you’re unsure how to complete the form, here.
You have to renew your exemption every 12 months.
If you are a Blue Badge holder or you are entitled to nil road tax either through the Motability scheme or if your vehicle is exempt due to a disability, you qualify for free travel through the Tyne Tunnels.
How to claim exemption
You can apply for a Toll Exemption Account which will be reviewed by TT2. Once confirmed, your vehicle registration number will be added to your account and will be recognised by our ANPR cameras. This means that you do not have to stop at an inspection lane to display your Blue Badge because our cameras will automatically recognise your exemption via your vehicle registration number as you drive straight through the tunnels.
