You may drive in Norway if you hold a valid driving licence from another EU/EEA country. However, you are subject to Norwegian health requirements.

Individual national driving licence categories from other countries are not valid in Norway.

At the website of the European Commission, you can search for driving licences by date of issue and see an overview of the valid driving licence models.

EU/EEA driving licences issued after an exchange from a non-EU/EEA country

If you obtained an EU/EEA driving licence by exchanging a driving licence from a non-EU/EEA country, the rules that apply for the country in which it was originally issued will usually apply. You can use it in Norway for up to three months.

If you took up normal residence in Norway before 19 January 2013 and you have an EU/EEA driving licence issued before this date, you may use it as a regular EU/EEA driving licence. The same applies if you have had valid driving entitlements in one or more EU/EEA countries for a continuous period of at least ten years before you took up normal residence in Norway.

Licences issued in violation of the requirement for permanent residence or student residence

Driving licences can in principle only be issued by the country where you have permanent (“normal”) residence, or where you are residing as a student. If you do not have normal residence or reside as a student in the country in which your driving licence was issued, it is possible that your licence is not valid for driving in Norway.

If there is information on the driving licence, or information from the issuing country, to the effect that the conditions for issue were not met at the time of issue, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration may start investigations to determine whether the licence is valid for driving in Norway.
