You may also report your driving licence lost or stolen by visiting the police or your nearest Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon). Remember to bring valid proof of identity.

Temporary driving permit

A temporary driving permit is valid for 3 months. It may be extended once, with a maximum validity period of six months from the date when you first reported the loss of your driving licence. You may have your temporary driving permit extended at Your page.

You need to carry your temporary driving permit with you when you drive, along with valid proof of identity. The permit is valid for driving in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

Order a new driving licence

You may order a new driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon) at the earliest four weeks after having reported it lost. This applies only if you have permanent residence of Norway. The new driving licence will be sent to you by mail and delivery time is normally 3-5 working days. Fees for issuing a new licence are listed here

If you are going to drive in countries outside the Nordic region, or if you can document that you need a new driving licence immediately, you do not have to wait four weeks but may order a new driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon). In such cases, you will need to provide documentation of your foreign travel plans.

Have you found your lost driving licence?

  • If you find your lost driving licence before having ordered a new one, you report your driving licence as found/retrieved on Your Page and start using it again.
  • If you find your lost driving licence after having ordered a new one, the driving licence you reported lost is to be handed in at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon).

Do you know where you left your driving licence?

If you know where you have left your driving licence and know that you will be able to retrieve it at some point, you may report it as misplaced on Your page. You will then be able to print out a temporary driving permit which you can use in the meantime. When you retrieve your driving licence, it will still be valid for use. You will not have to notify us that you have retrieved your driving licence.

Have you lost your driving licence abroad?

If you lose your driving licence while you are in Sweden, Denmark or Finland, you may log in to Your page and report it lost. You will then be able to print out a temporary driving permit which is valid in these countries.

If you are staying in a country outside the Nordic region, you should also report your driving licence lost on Your page, but the temporary driving permit will not be valid. If required, contact us for information on how to proceed.

Loss of foreign driving licence

If you have a foreign driving licence and it has been lost or stolen, you may be issued with a temporary driving permit. You need to obtain documentation of your driving entitlement from the licensing authority in the country of issue and bring this with you to a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon).
