Speeding Ticket Cost In Norway (2022 Figures And Numbers)

Norway takes speeding over the speed limit very serious, and you might have heard of some of the insanely high speeding tickets in Norway already. We’re going to be looking closer at these fines in this article, showing you exactly how much you can expect to pay if you get a speeding ticket in Norway.

The tables below show how much you can expect to pay in speeding tickets in Norway in 2022, sorted by the speed zones. If you drive faster than the final row on the tables, expect a court summoning and possibly harsh punishments such as losing your driver’s license or even jail time.

All the numbers are fixed, and Norwegian police officers won’t let you off the hook with a warning or just to be nice if you ask them nicely. All these rates are exactly how much you will get fined by speeding, and speeding is taken very seriously here in Norway.

The speeding tickets are just a nicer name for what is called a forenklet forelegg. These are fines that are given out with payment details by the police officers on the spot, and typically have a 7 day payment time.

You can choose to not accept the speeding ticket, but this will require you to meet up in court, and will in most cases end up costing a lot more if you are found guilty.

All USD approximates have been made by using the basis of 1 USD to be 10 NOK. All the numbers on the fine are from 01.03.2022, and are typically updated March 1 every year.

30 kph zones are pretty common in Norway in residential areas where the houses are very close to the road. You will also often find this speed zone in areas with schools and kindergartens close by. Since you get a 4,150 NOK for going a measly 11 kph over the speed limit, you better watch the speedometer when driving in a 30 kph zone!

How can you pay your Norwegian speeding ticket?

If you get a speeding ticket, you will get a physical ticket with payment details on it. This includes details for the SWIFT banking system, so you can pay it from any bank in most countries in the world.

You will usually get a copy of the fine at your home address if you don’t pay it within the time allotment, so it’s not the end of the world if you lose the physical fine. Most countries will have some agency that will forcefully collect the money from you if you don’t pay, but this varies from country to country.

There are no “fake police giving fake tickets” scams in Norway. In fact, pretending to be a police officer is a very serious crime that can often lead to jail time, so this is not something that happens in Norway.

So if you do get a fine from a police officer, it’s the real deal. The Norwegian police cars are white with black and yellow stripes on them, as you can see on the photo below. Their uniforms are typically black with a blue shirt under.

Is it true that you can get speeding fines based on your income in Norway?

Norway does not have a flexible fine system where you get speeding tickets based on how much money you make. These flexible income fines are limited to drunk driving, and you generally get a fine that is 1.5 x your monthly income if you get caught driving while being intoxicated. You get this 1.5 x your monthly income fine if you have more than 0.2 BAC.

Other countries like Finland has this type of system in place for speeding tickets as well, but as of 2022, all speeding tickets in Norway are a fixed amount.
