Registering An Imported Vehicle In Sweden? Learn About The Process Here!

Shipping a car or truck to another country is neither easy nor cheap, but it doesn’t have to be a hassle. Finding the right car shipping service can go a long way toward making the process relatively pain-free. Good communication on both sides is usually the key. However, there is another element of to the equation: how to register your vehicle once it arrives.

If you’re bringing a car to Sweden from the U.S., you are allowed to use it on a temporary basis, but if you plan on long term usage, you will have to get it registered. This page will go over some of the basic elements of registering an import in Sweden, as well as what documents are needed during the process.

Required Vehicle Registration Documents

The documents required to register a vehicle in Sweden are essentially the same as they are for any other country. Though you should always double check with the local transport authority to verify that there are no new regulations or other requirements, these are the primary documents you’ll need:

  • Proof of purchase
  • Title as proof of ownership
  • Registration
  • Driver’s license & passport
  • Customs clearance paperwork
  • Valid insurance

Roadworthiness Inspection: Sweden

A roadworthiness test or inspection is compulsory for any vehicle brought into the country from the United States. As with other Scandinavian and European countries, the test examines the basic safety and operational components of the vehicle to make sure everything works. The test in Sweden includes an inspection of the following components:

  • Headlights (including fog lights)
  • Turn indicators
  • Windshield wipers
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Seat belts
  • Tires
  • Engine

The inspection will also check that your windows and mirrors are in proper working order and without major cracks. You will need to have a road hazard triangle in the vehicle at all times, both to pass the roadworthiness inspection, and to operate the vehicle legally.

Winter Tires

You are required to have winter tires on your vehicle in Sweden from December through March. There is a special class of tire that is used for the winter conditions in Sweden, usually marked with an “M” and an “S” for mud and snow.

Don’t Drink & Drive

This is obvious advice that also applies in the U.S., but the limits and laws are much more stringent in Sweden (and Scandinavia in general) when it comes to drunk driving. You can also be stopped so taking any sort of chance after consuming alcohol is not recommended. The penalties are also very harsh for being even slightly over the limit of .02% BAC.
