Your old driving licence becomes invalid when you order a new driving licence.

Destroy your old driving licence 

When you renew your driving licence online, you are responsible for destroying your old driving licence. You can also hand it in to a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. This does not apply if you have reported your driving licence lost or stolen.

Order at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office

You must order your new driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office if 

  • the photo on your driving licence was taken before 1 January 2012
  • you have changed your name

If you need a new photo, there is an additional charge.

If you are going to order a new driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, you need to book an appointment in advance. At the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (DVLO) you will need to present valid proof of identity. If you need a new photo, you take this at the DVLO.

How to get a temporary driving permit

If you have a digital driving licence, the “Førerkort” app will display a temporary driving licence when you have ordered a new driving licence. If you do not have a digital driving licence, you can get a temporary driving permit this way:

  • If you order online, you can print it out when you have paid for your new licence.
  • If you order at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, you will be given one when you have paid for your new licence.

The temporary driving permit is only valid in Norway.
