Approval of trailer for driving at 100 km/h
Certain trailers and caravans may be tested and approved for “Tempo 100”. It is the Norwegian Public Roads Administration that issues the permits.
As from March 2022, it is permissible to pull certain trailers at up to 100 km/h (Tempo 100). If you have a trailer/caravan that is more than four years old, it must be tested and approved for roadworthiness before you can book a test for Tempo 100 with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. Trailers approved for Tempo 100 must be tested for roadworthiness every two years.
There are also requirements applying to the vehicle pulling the trailer. Even if the trailer has been approved for Tempo 100, you cannot drive at 100 km/h without the towing vehicle meeting these requirements.
You can check if your car and trailer can be approved for Tempo 100 using the calculator below.
Requirements applying to the trailer and towing vehicle
The car must have ABS brakes and a maximum authorised mass of 3,500 kg or less. In addition, there are weight requirements applying to the combination of car and trailer, so that the towing vehicle will not be too light compared to the trailer. There are also requirements for equipment to ensure stable and safe driving. Brakes and shock absorbers on the trailer, stabiliser coupling between trailer and towing vehicle, or electronic stability control in the car may compensate if the car is in principle too light compared to the trailer.
How to obtain approval for Tempo 100
- Use the calculator below to see if your trailer can be approved and if your car can be used as a towing vehicle at 100 km/h.
- Have your trailer tested at an approved garage or testing centre, if your trailer is more than four years old. It is important to carry out the roadworthiness test before the Tempo 100 test, since you are not allowed to drive with a Tempo 100 approved trailer without an approved roadworthiness test. Find an approved garage.
- Book a session for a vehicle test of the trailer
