Toll Invoice FAQs

A:

If you crossed the Golden Gate Bridge in the southbound direction and took no action to pay the toll (either by opening a FasTrak Account, opening a License Plate Account, or making a One-Time Payment), a Toll Invoice was generated and mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle, based on the license plate of that vehicle. The invoice amount due is for the amount of the toll only; fees and penalties are assessed if an invoice or any portion of an amount due goes unpaid.

Toll Invoices are generated and mailed to motorists who take no action to pay their Golden Gate Bridge toll (either by opening a FasTrak Account, opening a License Plate Account, or making a One-Time Payment). 

The first Toll Invoice is mailed about a week after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge for California plates (longer for some out-of-state plates). Thereafter, invoices are mailed on a 30-day cycle if the customer crosses the Golden Gate Bridge again in the same vehicle.

Yes. A Toll Invoice will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle, whether or not the vehicle is registered in California or not. This Toll Invoice must be paid within 21 days after being generated. If a visitor won’t be home within 21 days of crossing the Bridge heading southbound into San Francisco), it is recommended that they make a One-Time Payment within 30 days before or within 48 hours after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.

A:

An unpaid Toll Invoice or any unpaid portion of a Toll Invoice will result in a Toll Violation notice which attaches a $25 penalty for each toll transaction associated with the unpaid invoice.

If the first violation notice goes unpaid, a second violation notice will be issued, with increased penalties. If this second notice goes unpaid, the amount due is referred the California Department of Motor Vehicles which will withhold your vehicle registration until the penalties are paid. For out-of-state vehicles, the matter is referred to a collections agency.
