The police, Norwegian Customs, and the Norwegian Public Roads Administration will monitor compliance with the tag requirement, and inspections will be carried out along the road.

What will be subject to inspection?

  • A valid tag must be placed on the windscreen in accordance with instructions
  • The vehicle must have a tag that is valid for heavy vehicles
  • The vehicle must have a valid tag number which is linked to the registration number of the vehicle

How will inspections be carried out?

The Norwegian Public Roads Administrations will target heavy vehicles and business vehicles for toll tag inspections. Inspections will be carried out in the following ways:

  • Random inspections, also as part of ordinary roadside vehicle inspections. In the latter case, this means a visual inspection of the tag.
  • Targeted inspections: This means that the inspection is carried out by the use of mobile ANPR equipment (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) along the road. The vehicle’s registration number is checked against the toll operators’ list of valid tags for heavy vehicles. ANPR recordings of light vehicles are immediately deleted.

A breach of the regulation will entail a fine of NOK 8 000.  If the violation is repeated within a period of two years, a fine of NOK 16 000 will be imposed. The fine must be paid within three weeks even if you appeal, otherwise it will be increased by 50 per cent to NOK 12 000 or NOK 24 000.

You may appeal against a fine within three weeks

Use the complaint form or submit your appeal by email or letter. The appeal must include your grounds for appealing, and you must attach relevant documentation to support this. Log in to “MinSide” or contact your toll road operator to obtain the necessary documentation. Here is an example of relevant documentation (screen dump) that you can obtain from your toll road operator.

Send your appeal to the control authority that has imposed the fine:

  • Appeals to The Norwegian Public Roads Administration should be sent to the regional office for the region where the fine was imposed.
  • Appeals to the police should be sent to the police district where the fine was imposed.
  • Appeals to The Norwegian Customs Authority should be sent to the customs region where the fine was imposed.

Applications to postpone payment or to split the payment should be sent to The Norwegian National Collection Agency.
