Tolls in Norway

Seamless mobility through Norway
The Scandinavian country of Norway always collects tolls when cost-intensive traffic structures must be directly refinanced. The toll is then collected until the construction costs have been amortised. No distinctions are made here in the Norwegian toll settlement obligation: Anyone wishing to have access to the corresponding infrastructure must pay a toll. This is why, in addition to tunnels and bridges, individual segments of the public road network are often subject to tolls, but not whole categories of roads in their entirety.
What is precisely specified and obligatory, though: Vehicles of ≥3.5 t used for commercial purposes must be equipped with an on-board unit. This is not obligatory for other vehicles, but the use of a toll box offers very worthwhile advantages for them as well: Time savings from rapid passage through toll booths, amalgamated invoicing, and discounts by default nearly everywhere. Drivers of privately owned vehicles ≥ 3.5 t will also appreciate being charged at the lower fee category 1 with an OBU.
In addition to the use of OBUs, heavily favoured and promoted by Norway, it is also possible to be recorded by the cameras installed at the toll booths and subsequently billed by the London firm Euro Parking Collection plc (EPC). This company was specifically commissioned by the Kingdom of Norway to offer the use of the Norwegian toll settlement system to foreign-registered vehicles. Norway dispenses almost entirely with manned toll booths and thus requires the near-universal electronic settlement of tolls. Only very rarely will you have the option of manual settlement.

The toll system in Norway
How is the toll collected?
Open, electronic toll collection system with the option of settlement via on-board unit or registration plate recording via video for visitors' vehicles with postpay settlement by EPC
Checks are the official responsibility of public authorities, i.e. police, customs and the Norwegian road administration.
Vehicles of ≥ 3.5 t used for commercial purposes are required to have an OBU. This is linked to, among other things, whether and which cargo is carried, whether a logo has been fitted, or to whom the vehicle has been registered. In case of any doubt, system operator AutoPass advises to use a toll box to prevent severe penalties. Motor vehicle drivers who are regarded to be commercial drivers and who do not have the compulsory on-board unit installed will be fined 8000 kroner (approx. 820 euros). In case of a repeat offence this fine is doubled.
