Q&A about the fee

What does the fee scheme imply?

The fee scheme implies that an owner who has not duly insured the vehicle with mandatory motor insurance (liability insurance) must pay a fee to the Norwegian Motor Insurers’ Bureau (TFF) for the period the vehicle has invalid insurance. 

What is the background for introducing the fee?

The purpose of the fee scheme is to motivate the legal fulfillment of the insurance obligation, ie that owners get their uninsured vehicles insured.

Why have I received an invoice for the fee?

You are registered as the owner of an uninsured vehicle.

What is the cost per day?

Fee rates per day:

Moped, tractor, motor vehicle, veteran vehicle: 50 NOK per day

Car, van, caravan, bicycle, motorcycle, bicycle (snowmobile): 150 NOK per day

* In addition, the motor insurance tax to the authorities (previous annual fee) is required for each day the vehicle is uninsured:

Motor bike: 5,46 NOK per day

Which vehicles must be insured?

All vehicles, such as cars, mopeds, motorcycles, tractors and buses, etc., with license plates on or have status as registered, must be insured.

Which vehicles do not need insurance?

The mandatory motor third party liability insurance (MTPL) is not required for deregistered, unregistered, wrecked or stolen vehicles. Trailers or caravans are not defined as motor vehicles and do not require MTPL. 

How can I avoid the fee?

You have two options:

My vehicle is not in driving condition - must I have insurance?

All vehicles which has the license plates on or have status as registered, must be insured. Even if the vehicle is not in use or is not in drivable condition, it must be insured. If the license plates are not delivered to the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, you must insure your vehicle.

What happens if I do not pay the fee?

If you do not pay the fee, the Norwegian Motor Insurers’ Bureau (TFF) will send reminders and forward the claim for legal collection. In practice, this means that the car will be stopped in the event of a roadside check. Please note that previously issued daily omission fees will not be canceled when getting insurance.
