The minimum age to obtain a Snowmobile licence is 16, but until the age of 18, the driving entitlement is limited to category 1 (snowmobile with a weight/power ratio not exceeding 0.20 kW/kg). Under the new rules of 1 July 2006, those who acquired a driving licence for motorcycles, tractors or passenger cars (category B) for the first time were no longer given category S for free.


  • Theoretical Test: 580 NOK
  • Issuance of driver licence: 270 NOK
  • Photo : 70 NOK


Driving licence categories A, A1, B, B1, BE, M, S and T normally have lifelong validity, given as being up to the age of 100. In special cases the validity may be limited to a shorter period (criminal record, poor health, no test of night driving). However, after the age of 70 the validity of the driving licence is dependent on your carrying a valid medical certificate when driving.

A medical certificate has a validity of from one to five years, depending on the licence holder's state of health.
