13.155 Weight Fees (VC §9400)

Commercial vehicles are subject to weight fees in addition to registration and vehicle license fees. The weight fee amount is determined based on the vehicle’s unladen weight, gross vehicle weight (GVW), or combined gross vehicle weight (CGW) and number of axles. Refer to Appendix 1F for Weight Fee Schedules.

When a used body is removed from a currently registered vehicle and installed on a new cab and chassis, weight fees for the entire vehicle are due.
