Transfer of ownership


For sellers


When you sell a vehicle that has a user agreement, remember to cancel your agreement and remove the toll payment tag from the vehicle. Otherwise, you will be charged for toll transactions made by the new owner until the termination of your agreement is registered. Normally, it will take from one to five business days from the change of ownership is reported until this is registered in AutoPASS Samvirke.

For buyers


When you buy a vehicle, make sure that the seller has terminated his/her user agreement before you take over the vehicle. If this is not done, the seller can see the time and place of your toll transactions until the termination of the agreement is registered. It may be difficult for you to enter a new user agreement with the same toll service provider as in the seller’s agreement, before the seller has terminated his/her agreement. It is in the seller's interest to terminate his/her user agreement so that (s)he is not charged for toll transactions after the sale.

Responsibility for tolls on the date of sale


The transfer of ownership is registered in the Register of Motor Vehicles when all parties have signed the Notification of Sale. Ownership is transferred from one day to the next, not at a particular time of day. The date on which the Notification of Sale is confirmed by all parties is the date of effect. This means that if the takeover and the parties' signing of the online Notification of Sale takes place at 17:00, the buyer will be responsible for paying for all toll transactions on this date (for vehicles not covered by a user agreement) as this is the date of effect. A seller with a user agreement is responsible for paying all toll transaction until the agreement is registered to a new owner. Normally, it will take from one to five business days from the transfer of ownership is reported until this is registered in AutoPASS Samvirke. Read more about the date of effect on the website of the Norwegian Motor Insurers’ Bureau (TFF)

Make specific arrangements for toll payment on the day of the purchase


If the seller and buyer want tolls to be paid by the party that actually passes the toll station on the date of sale, this should be specified in the purchase contract. If no such agreement has been made, it may be difficult for the party who receives an invoice for toll transactions generated after the sale to get the other party to refund the expense. The amount of toll that may be charged to the buyer for a vehicle that does not have a user agreement at the time of the takeover, or to the seller who does have an a user agreement at the time of the takeover, will depend on how many toll transactions the other party has generated on the takeover date.
