Driving entitlements that expired between September 2020 and the end of June 2021 have been extended. They are now valid until 10 months after the validity date stated on your driving licence.

 

If you have passed 80 years of age, you still need to renew your driving licence with a health certificate. This also applies if you turn 80 before the extended entitlement expires.

You can renew your driving licence and driving entitlements (licence categories) at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon) or online.

Renew your driving licence Log in

It is cheaper to renew a driving licence online on Your Page than at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. We will send you your new driving licence by post, usually within two weeks.

If you plan to renew your driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, you need to book an appointment.

First submit your health certificate

If you are renewing your licence for heavy vehicle categories, if your driving licence has a limited term of validity for health reasons, or if you have turned 80, you need to submit a health certificate before you can renew your driving licence. You can obtain a health certificate from your doctor after an examination of your health. 

You do not need to submit a health certificate if you are renewing your driving licence because you have completed the night driving course and/or the safety course on a practice track, or because you have changed your name or need a new photo.

Send your health certificate to your local Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office

We need the original version of your health certificate. It must not be more than three months old when we receive it.  You can mail it to your nearest Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. You can also hand it in yourself.

You can renew your driving licence once we have registered your health certificate

It may take up to a week from the time we receive your health certificate, before it is registered in our systems.

Once we have registered your certificate

The term of validity of your new driving licence will be determined based on the date when the health certificate was issued.

Renewing online

You can renew your driving licence on Your Page. 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.

Renewal at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office

You need to renew your driving licence and driving entitlements (licence categories) 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, you will be told so if you try to renew your driving licence on Your Page.

If you wish to renew your driving licence at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, you need to book an appointment in advance. Bring your health certificate and, if required, an eyesight certificate when you go there. You also need to bring valid proof of identity and your old driving licence. If you need a new photo, you must take this at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. There is an extra charge for this.

How to get a temporary driving permit

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

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

The temporary driving permit is only valid in Norway.
