All registered vehicles have a registration certificate issued by the Swedish Transport Agency.
The below is an extract from Part 1 which contains technical information about the vehicle. The information found here includes, for example, the maximum permitted weight for a trailer.
As Part 2 is used for change of ownership, it is important that you store this part of the registration certificate somewhere safe. The glove compartment is a bad place to keep Part 2!
The easiest way to change ownership is via the Swedish Transport Agency’s website or app. You can also fill in the buyer’s personal details in Part 2 and send it by mail.
By laying up your car you avoid having to pay vehicle tax and third-party insurance. There are different methods of laying up and starting up the vehicle:
If a driving ban is imposed on the vehicle, this does not mean that it is automatically laid up. You must always actively lay up the vehicle yourself.
A laid up vehicle may only be driven to and from the roadworthiness test, provided third-party insurance is paid and there are no motor vehicle tax arrears.
It is also forbidden to tow a laid up vehicle.
