Paying the charge
You must pay the Dartford Crossing charge by midnight the day after you cross.
You can get a fine if you’re late or do not pay.

You can also use this service to:
- set up an account
- pay or challenge a fine (known as a Penalty Charge Notice)
- apply for a local resident discount if you live in Dartford or Thurrock
- check which crossings you’ve paid for
