Your phone number is also your user name. We have sent you the password via SMS. If you have forgotten your password, click "Log in" and then "Forgot password". Follow the instructions from there and you will receive a new SMS with your password.

If you've bought a scratch card from your driving school, click on the blue «scratch card»-button on the upper right hand side of the page and follow the instructions.

If you are logged in, you'll find scratch card under «My account» on the upper right hand side of the page.

The four most common reasons for this are:

  1. If you don't have sufficient funds on your prepaid card, you will not be able to buy access to the service.
  2. If your mobile subscription is set up to not allow paying for services you will not be able to buy access to our service with your mobile phone.
  3. If your mobile operator is having problems with their systems or their mobile network is down, you will not be able to pay with your mobile phone.
  4. If your operator is Lyca Mobil it is not possible to pay with SMS. Lyca Mobile does not support SMS payments.

In all of these cases we recommend paying with credit card or Vipps instead.

The three most common reasons for this are:

  1. You are using an outdated version of the Vipps application.

    Solution: Update the application and try again.

  2. The payment card registered in the Vipps application is not valid.

    Solution: Check the payment card details registered under settings in the Vipps application. Register a valid payment card, or choose one of our other payment options.

  3. Not enough funds available to complete the transaction.

    Solution: Add more funds to your account, or choose one of our other payment options.

All products on teoritentamen.no can be payed with Vipps or debit/credit card. On the majority of passes we also offer SMS payment.

If you don't have Vipps, debit/credit card nor any card that works for online payment, we recommend using a Visa gift card, for example SpendOn. The card can be bought at Narvesen, 7-Eleven and other shops, and refilled with the desired amount from your dealer.

The validity period of the pass begins when you first use the service. Remaining time will be displayed on your dashboard.

If the amount is marked as «reserved» on your online banking service, the amount have not been charged. The reservation will be cancelled automatically within 5 working days. You can safely buy a new pass or you can instead choose SMS as a payment option. Contact your bank if you need more information.

When you buy access to our services you get a personal account. You should not under any circumstance share your account details with others, as they would then be able to buy additional services with your phone number or credit card.

Your personal account is only valid for you. You can only access your account from one browser at a time. If you try to log in using two different browsers at the same time, one of the sessions will be stopped automatically.

In order to prevent illegitimate usage we have to restrict access to a maximum of three different devices/browsers (example; you may use the service on one mobile phone and two different computers). In addition to this you may use the app on 1 tablet and 1 mobile phone.

Theory tests

We work hard to ensure that teoritentamen.no always is the number one theory test service in Norway. To achieve this we utilize 3 different mechanisms:

  1. The tests are developed by experienced authors from Autoriserte Trafikkskolers Landsforbund (ATL). The authors read each other’s questions before they send the complete tests to us.
  2. When we receive tests from ATL, we proofread them thoroughly before they are published on teoritentamen.no
  3. When customers have inquires about a question we get our authors to double-check straight away and correct them - if necessary - accordingly. The majority of our tests have been «live» for several months, and thousands of customers have already had the chance to comment any abnormalities.

Should anything be unclear regarding a question on a test, please email us using this form. Remember to take note of the question-id, take a screen shot of the question or simply copy the text from the question.

Statens vegvesen do not disclose their tests, but our tests are made in the same way. Our tests are written by the highly competent writers from Autoriserte Trafikkskolers Landsforbund, the same team behind the well renowned «How to get your Driver's licence»-series.

We get a lot of feedback from our customers that our tests resemble the tests they take on the official theory exam.

Yes, for category B this is correct. For other licence categories it will differ slightly, but in general you must answer 85% of questions correctly in order to pass. You can find more information about the theory test on the Norwegian Public Roads Administration's ('Statens vegvesen') website.

When you have purchased access and logged in you can choose to activate text-to-speech functionality before you start the test.

Text-to-speech functionality is available in all licence categories in Norwegian.

We have written easy-to-understand explanations for each of the questions in category B, which will help you greatly in preparing for your theory test.

In general you need to answer at least 84% of the questions correctly to pass, but the exact number of questions this corresponds to will vary between different categories of driving licences. You can find more information about the theory test on the Public Road Administration's (Statens vegvesen) website.

Theory course

Our theory course is a complete online course, which covers the entire curriculum set forth by the Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen).

Selet "Notes" from the menu at the top of the theory course site. Here you will find all the topics you have saved, as well as any notes you may have added.

The theory courses for car, moped and motorcycle have been recorded in their entirety, and text-to-speech functionality is available throughout the courses.

Boat course

This is entirely dependent on how your own efforts. There have been participants who have gone through the entire curriculum in less than 2 weeks, but if you are only able to work on the course in your spare time a day or two a week it will normally take longer than this.

The course consists of 150 lessons, with questions and exercises, divided into an introductory section and three major modules: "Seamanship", "Laws and regulations" and "Navigation".

No, our boating course covers the entire curriculum, and the course fee includes all learning materials needed.

Our boating course provides an introduction to topics such as:
  • good seamanship
  • laws and regulations at sea
  • basic navigation: nautical charts, compass, navigation marks, lights and lighthouses, use of navigational instruments and manual navigation techniques.
  • how to handle emergency situations
  • Piloting a pleasure craft up to 15 metres.

These rules apply today. Those concerning boats 15 metres or longer will still apply.

You must have turned 16 years to operate a pleasure craft fitted with a motor 10 hp or greater, or that can achieve speeds above 10 knots, or that is longer than 8 metres. To operate pleasure boats 15 metres or longer, a more comprehensive licence is required. Please contact postmottak@sjofartsdir.no for more information regarding this licence.

You need to have turned 14 years. If you are under 14 when you pass the exam, the examiner may issue a written testimony that you may exchange for a boating licence once you turn 14. If you lose your licence, please contact Norsk Test to acquire a duplicate.

Our boating course only covers the theory for the boating licence. In addition to this, you will have to register for the exam and pay the exam fee.

When you are getting near the end of the course, you can find a testing facility near you in the list located on the opening site after logging in. Book an appointment with the testing facility directly, and take the actual boating licence exam there.

The test must be completed at an approved testing facility under supervision of a test manager. The test is computer-based, and consists solely of multiple-choice questions and simple fill in the blanks questions, similar to what you will see in our boating course.
