The new rule comes into force on Monday 4th of April 2016 and applies to all vehicles over 3,500 kg registered in the vehicle category M1.
Vehicle category M1 includes vehicles used for passenger transport with a maximum of eight seats in addition to the driver’s seat. Most camping vehicles and other larger cars for personal use are included in this vehicle group.
In order for vehicles over 3,500 kg with category M1 to receive the same rate as cars under 3500 kg, you have to show valid documentation when you pass the toll station without an agreement.
If you have a Norwegian vehicle, which already has a valid contract with Atlanterhavstunnelen, you do not have to do anything. All existing contracts will be changed automatically so that vehicles over 3,500 kg belonging to vehicle category M1 will get light vehicle-rate when they pay with the Atlanterhavs card in the toll plaza from 4th of April.
To draw an agreement and acquire an Atlanterhavs card, see more information on www.en.atlanterhavstunnelen.no
Foreign-registered cars with Atlanterhavs card.
If you have a foreign registered vehicle over 3,500 kg in vehicle category M1 and already have a valid contract with Atlanterhavstunnelen, you must contact the toll company to change the agreement so that you get light vehicle fare. In addition, they must submit documentation that the vehicle belongs to vehicle category M1.
