All registered vehicles have a registration certificate issued by the Swedish Transport Agency.
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 registering your car as being off the road, you avoid having to pay vehicle tax and third-party insurance. There are different ways to submit notifications of the on-road or off-road status of your vehicle:
If a driving ban has been imposed on the vehicle, this does not mean that it will automatically have off-road status. You must always actively submit an off-road notification yourself.
A vehicle with registered off-road status may only be driven to and from the roadworthiness test, provided that third-party insurance has been paid, and there are no motor vehicle tax arrears.
It is also forbidden to tow a vehicle with off-road status.
