Winter tyre

Tyres and snow chains

You as the driver must assess whether the vehicle you are driving has sufficient grip on the road surface. On slippery surfaces sufficient traction can be ensured by using studded or non-studded winter tyres, snow chains or similar devices.

Toll road

Clarifying responsibilities for Norwegian road toll collection

The roles of toll service provider and toll charger will be separated. This is done in order to prevent cross subsidizing between toll road companies and to allow for the electronic toll tags to be opened up for alternative uses.


Information for professional drivers

For information relating to professional transport (e.g. permits, tyres, raod financing, driving time and rest period), please visit the The Norwegian Public Roads Administration's website.
