Why register foreign rental / leasing cars?
If you register, you will get the invoice directly. If you don’t register, the invoice will be sent to the rental / leasing
car company. The company will add administration fees to cover their cost of handling the invoice and collecting the amount

to your e-mail. You may at any time notify EPC about changes or cancel the registration.

It took many months from I travelled in Norway to I received the invoice. Why?
Processing data and finding relevant information might take some time. Toll passages are also put on hold for short periods
to enable more toll passages to be included in the same invoice. Therefore, the invoicing time may be longer than you are
I have been charged an additional fee of 300 NOK. Why?
You have been charged a fee of 300 NOK for one of the following reasons:
- You have passed a manual toll plaza in the AutoPASS-lane without having a valid On-board Unit.
- You have not paid the invoice in due time.
If the invoice with the additional fee is not paid, you will get a new invoice with an additional fee of 150 NOK.
Why does the invoice include images of my car?
The image is captured at an automatic toll station. If a vehicle does not have a valid On-board Unit an image of the licence
plate is automatically taken in order to connect the vehicle to its registered owner. The images are included on the invoice
to prove that the toll passage took place.
I was driving at night. Why are the images bright?
The brightness of the image is auto-adjusted in order to read the license plate number.
