If you are the registered owner of a vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is tested and approved within the deadline. When the deadline expires, use of the vehicle will be prohibited, and its number plates may be removed by law enforcement if you are pulled over for inspection.
What should you do if you forgot the deadline?
- If you wish to use the vehicle, you must immediately book a test session with an approved garage/supervisory body and have the vehicle approved for roadworthiness. Remember that if the deadline has expired you must have your vehicle transported to the test site, since it is prohibited from use.
- If you are not going to use the vehicle, you can deregister it by handing in the number plates at a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon).
- If you are unable to take your vehicle to the test site yourself, you can have someone else do it for you. The owner does not have to be present at the test.
- As a main rule, extensions are only granted in cases of serious illness, which will have to be documented by a medical certificate. Read more about the criteria for extension of the mandatory roadworthiness test deadline.
