Weight Control of Trucks in Norway

Weight control of trucks in Norway is crucial for road safety and infrastructure protection. This system includes stationary weighing stations and mobile inspection units conducting checks on various road segments.

Norwegian regulations specify maximum allowable axle loads and total vehicle weight. Exceeding these limits results in severe penalties, including fines and a prohibition on travel until the load is adjusted. Locations of weight control stations and self-check places are marked on a map prepared by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.


Not every weight control point requires mandatory weighing of all vehicles. Road inspectors conduct random checks, selecting vehicles based on criteria such as appearance or road behavior.
Truck drivers must have documents confirming compliance with weight regulations, such as weight cards or transport documents.

The truck weight control system in Norway, effectively ensures road safety and infrastructure protection. We encourage drivers and carriers to be aware of these regulations to avoid penalties and maintain smooth transport operations.
