Norwegian cars with AutoPASS tag
If you have a Norwegian vehicle, which already has a AutoPASS tag with a valid agreement, you do not have to do anything. The AutoPASS system will automatically changes all existing agreements, so that vehicles over 3,500 kg belonging to vehicle category M1 get light vehicle price when they pass through the toll plazas as of 4th of April.
Foreign-registered cars with AutoPASS tag
If you have a foreign registered vehicle over 3,500 kg in vehicle category M1, and already have a AutoPASS tag with a valid agreement, you must call your toll tag issuer to change the agreement so that you will get the light vehicle price. In addition, you must submit documentation to show that the vehicle belongs to vehicle category M1.
If you have other types of EasyGO tags
If you have a vehicle over 3,500 kg in vehicle category M1, which uses EasyGo tags in stead of AutoPASS tags, you must contact your tag issuer to change your agreement so that you can get light vehicle price when passing the Norwegian toll plazas.
