Tolls in Hungary are due for all motor vehicles with a total weight of more than 3.5 tons (except buses) that use the paid road network. Buses and vehicles under 3.5 tons use the paid road network through vignettes.

Toll roads in Hungary cover about 7,100 km of highways and main roads.

Tolls are collected through an electronic tolling system based on distance traveled (DTS), which was introduced in 2013 and is managed by NUSZ (National Toll Payment Service). The tariff is calculated based on the type of road, the category of the vehicle (J2, J3, J4), and its ecological category.
