  • Warning triangle – It is mandatory to have a warning triangle in the car. In the event of a breakdown or an accident, it is mandatory to use a warning triangle if the car comes to a standstill in a place where it is a danger to other traffic.
  • Safety vest – At least one safety vest must be provided in every vehicle and must be worn in the event of a breakdown or accident. The safety vest must be stored in a place that is easily accessible for the driver (not in the trunk).¬†We advise drivers to bring a safety vest in the car for all occupants. Safety vests must comply with the EN471 standard within Europe (fluorescent yellow, orange or red and provided with retro-reflective strips). A safety vest is only mandatory in vehicles with a Norwegian registration number, but we advise drivers to follow the local rules for safety reasons and to avoid a possible discussion with the police on the spot.
  • Fire extinguisher – In a motorhome or car with a caravan with a Norwegian registration, an approved fire extinguisher containing at least 2 kg of extinguishing agent must be present. We advise drivers of a camper or car with caravan to bring an approved fire extinguisher to avoid a possible discussion with the local police. Drivers of cars without a caravan are also advised to bring a fire extinguisher.

It is not mandatory to bring spare bulbs.
