If you are transferring a vehicle to a family member, you need to submit a Notification of Sale.

Even if you are related to the person to whom you are transferring the ownership of your vehicle, you need to submit a Notification of Sale for the vehicle to be registered to the new owner.

This applies whether you are transferring the ownership to your spouse, your children or other individuals in your family.

You also need to submit a Notification of Sale if you are going to make the following changes within the family:

  • make a co-owner the owner
  • add a co-owner
  • make the vehicle's registered owner a co-owner

Is the person buying or taking over the vehicle under the age of 18?

If a person under 18 is buying or taking over the ownership of a vehicle, you cannot submit the Notification of Sale online. You then need to submit the Notification of Sale on paper (in Norwegian only).  

Transferring ownership as a legal guardian

If you are selling a vehicle on behalf of a person of whom you are the legal guardian, you need to submit the Notification of Sale on paper (in Norwegian only). The Notification of Sale must be accompanied by documentation of your status as legal guardian. 

Exemption from registration transfer fee 

Exemption from the registration transfer fee applies to registration transfer between spouses. This also applies if you are separated or divorced.

The exemption is automatically applied when you submit the Notification of Sale. If the divorce is finalised, you will have to apply to the Norwegian Tax Administration for an exemption before you submit the Notification of Sale.

Cohabitants are not exempt from paying the registration transfer fee. Transferring ownership to children or other family members is also not exempt from the registration transfer fee (Norwegian Tax Administration).
