Sweden Vehicle Registration Process

Sweden Vehicle Registration Process
🇸🇪 Sweden, (SE)

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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
