Your driving licence lists the driving entitlements (driving licence categories) you hold. The validity of your driving licence card may be shorter than the validity of your driving entitlement.
The deadline for renewing your driving licence card depends on its date of issue. Check when you need to renew your driving license.
You can renew your driving licence yourself online, or visit a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon). See how to renew your driving licence.
The expiry date for your driving entitlement in each licence category ca be found in column 11 on the back of your driving licence. Check when you need to renew your entitlements for these licence categories:
- Renewing light vehicle categories: moped, passenger car, motorcycle, snowmobile and tractor.
- Renewing heavy vehicle categories: minibus, bus and lorry
- Renewing after you turn 80
In the event of a name change
If you have changed your name, your driving licence must be renewed at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon); you cannot do it yourself online. If the picture on your driving licence is too old or unclear, you need to take a new picture at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office.
