In most cases, your new plates will contain a new combination of characters, in order to reduce the risk of fraud. Some exceptions are made for heavy vehicles. These may in some cases keep the same combination of characters. Veteran cars (more than 30 years old) may keep the same registration number as before.

Visit the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon)

Once you have reported the loss to the police, you should go to a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon). You need to bring with you:

  • the police notification 
  • valid proof of identity
  • the remaining plate if only one plate has been lost or stolen.

You pay for your new number plates at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office. They cost from NOK 65 to NOK 140. Payment must be made in cash or by debit card; credit cards are not accepted.

You will receive new plates and a temporary VRC immediately. A new VRC will be sent to you by post.
Remember to inform other enterprises of your new vehicle registration number - such as toll operators, parking operators, etc.
