NC Quick Pass is a pre-paid account used for all electronic toll collection. It is one way of paying for tolls on North Carolina toll facilities. (See Bill by Mail for the other method.) Drivers open an NC Quick Pass pre-paid account and use a small electronic device called a transponder. The transponder attaches to the vehicle and is read by antennas mounted above the roadway. Toll payment is automatically deducted from the customer's account. NC Quick Pass customers receive a discounted toll rate from non-account holders.
Once you sign up for an NC Quick Pass account and purchase a transponder, the transponder will be mounted to the vehicle. This transponder is read as you pass through the toll zones and the information is sent to our Customer Service Center. This information is processed, and a toll payment is automatically deducted from the customer's pre-paid account.
Signing up for an NC Quick Pass account is quick and easy through our online application at You may also download an application and fax or mail it to the NC Quick Pass Customer Service Center. You will receive your transponder in the mail within 5-7 business days.

Customer Service Center location/mailing address: 200 Sorrell Grove Church Road, Suite A in Morrisville, NC 27560. Fax number: (919) 388-3279.
