Who can test your vehicle?

The roadworthiness test can be carried out by an establishment/supervisory body approved by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, including authorised garages and NAF (Norwegian Automobile Association) testing stations. Here you can find an authorised garage/supervisory body.

The testing establishment is responsible for reporting the test result to the NPRA. You are also entitled to receive a copy of the inspection sheet, so that if questions arise at a later stage you will have documentation showing that the vehicle has been tested.
