Short-term use of a foreign-registered vehicle in Norway

You can use a foreign-registered car in Norway for short-term periods of up to 14 days in any 12-month period. The 14-day period can be divided into a number of periods.

You can change any information you've previously reported.

The rule applies to all types of vehicles, including trailers and caravans.

Combining short-term use and private storage of the vehicle

If you're using the vehicle for short-term periods whilst also storing it privately, you must report the private storage separately. 

It's your responsibility to ensure that you've left yourself enough time within the allowed days/periods of short-term use to take the vehicle out of Norway after completing the storage of it. You must report this yourself.

You must carry the confirmation in the vehicle

The feedback you receive indicating that the information has been received by the tax authorities will be deemed to provide confirmation that a driving permit has been issued. You must carry this confirmation in the vehicle.

You must give advance notice

The person intending to use the vehicle must notify the Norwegian Tax Administration before the vehicle is imported into Norway.

Please note the following:

  • Before the end of the reported period, you must take the vehicle out of Norway, unless you have a permit for private storage.
  • If you do not follow the regulations, you’ll have to pay duties. You may also have to pay additional tax.
