If you are unable or unwilling to submit the Notification of Sale online, you can hand in or send us the Notification of Sale on paper.

As a Notification of Sale, you can the Notification of Sale form (Norwegian only, PDF), or if you have a Notification of Sale form as part of Part 2 of your Vehicle Registration Certificate (VRC), you can use this form. It is the seller who is responsible for submitting the Notification of Sale. 

Remember that you as the buyer must take out insurance on the vehicle from the date of effect. The date of effect is the day when the Notification of Sale is registered in our system by our staff at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon). If you have not taken out insurance within three days of the date of effect, you will be required to pay an omission fine for each day the vehicle is uninsured. If you choose to submit the Notification of Sale online, the date of effect will be the day when the Notification of Sale is confirmed by all parties.

How to do it 

  1. Start by checking each other's proof of identity. The buyer ought to verify that it is the seller that is registered in the VRC as the owner of the vehicle.
  2. Fill in the Notification of Sale together, using either Part 2 of the VRC or the Notification of Sale form (Norwegian only, PDF). Both buyer and seller need to sign the same Notification of Sale.
  3. The seller hands in or mails the Notification of Sale to a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office within three days. When handing in the form in person, the seller must present proof of identity at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. If the Notification of Sale is sent by post, the seller will receive an SMS to confirm the Notification of Sale on Your Page.
  4. The buyer will receive an SMS to confirm the Notification of Sale on Your Page once the seller has handed it in. Alternatively, the buyer can visit a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, sign the Notification of Sale and present proof of identity.

Please remember that the following fields must not be crossed out: signature, licence plate number, brand/make, chassis number/VIN, both owners’ name, address, Norwegian national ID number/D number/organisation number and date. If any of these fields are crossed out, the Notification of Sale will not be approved.

If the vehicle has or is going to have more than one owner, the field for co-owner must be filled in. Remember that the co-owner also needs to sign the Notification of Sale and provide proof of identity.

Part 1 of the VRC may be left in the vehicle and should be destroyed when you receive your new VRC.

Transfer of registration

It is the buyer who is responsible for paying the registration transfer fee. The vehicle may not be used before the transfer of registration has been completed and the buyer has received a new Vehicle Registration Certificate (VRC). Check this list to see what you as the buyer need to do to have the registration transfer completed.

It is safe and easy to pay the registration transfer fee online on Your Page. Once you have paid, you can download and print out a temporary VRC and start using your vehicle right away.

Once the Notification of Sale has been handed in at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, they buyer may alternatively get payment information (KID/Customer Identification Number, account number and amount) for payment in a bank/through internet banking. It will then take 2-3 working days before your payment is registered, and you can download or print out a temporary VRC from Your Page.

You will receive a new VRC by post within four to seven working days after payment of the registration transfer fee has been registered.

Buyer under 18

If you are the buyer and under 18, you cannot submit the Notification of Sale online. You must then submit the Notification of Sale on paper and at least one of your parents (legal guardian) must visit a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office, sign the Notification of Sale and present proof of identity. The parent (legal guardian) that does not come to the Licensing Office in person needs to provide the other with written authorisation and a copy of proof of identity for the other to confirm the Notification of Sale. As the buyer, you too have to sign the Notification of Sale or provide written confirmation that you are to be registered as the owner of the vehicle.

However, if the buyer is under 12 years old, there is no requirement that the buyer must sign, only the parents/guardian(s). 

Have you bought a vehicle without number plates?

In order to be issued with number plates, the registration transfer for the vehicle must be completed. If the seller handed in the number plates to the Vehicle and Driver Licensing Office for storage less than six months ago, you can collect them from the Licensing Office where they were handed in. If the plates were handed in for storage more than six months ago, you will have to order new number plates.
