  • To be able to register a vehicle, it must comply with mandatory Norwegian technical requirements. This can be done by presenting proof that the vehicle has been type approved or by having the vehicle undergo Individual Vehicle Approval:
    • Type Approval: A newly manufactured vehicle which has been type approved in accordance with EU standards (ECWVTA) and is being imported by private individuals must be presented for an identity check, and a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) must be submitted. This document is issued by the vehicle manufacturer for vehicles that have been type approved. You must bear in mind that the CoC document is valid for a specific chassis number only.
    • Individual vehicle approval of a newly manufactured vehicle: Vehicles that have not been type approved in accordance with EU standards, documentation of compliance with mandatory Norwegian technical requirements must be submitted.
    • Individual vehicle approval of imported second-hand vehicles: You need to book an appointment with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. (Phone: 06650).
  • Vehicles to be registered that have been awarded type approval in accordance with EU standards requires that you submit documentation showing compliance with the EU Type Approval in question, unless this is clearly marked on the vehicle. Alternatively, documentation can be submitted to prove that the vehicle complies with the technical requirements stipulated by the Norwegian Regulations.
  • If the vehicle has previously been registered in another country, all parts of the foreign vehicle registration certificate must be handed in during the registration process.
  • Before you can register your vehicle, a one-off registration tax must be calculated and paid to Norwegian Customs and Excise (Note: exemptions apply to certain groups of vehicles).
