In this section, you can find out more about your vehicle's
registration certificate and what you can use it for.
A registration certificate is issued for every vehicle
registered in Sweden. The registration certificate has comprised
two parts since 2004: Part 1 of the registration certificate and
Part 2 of the registration certificate.
A registration certificate can be ordered via
If you order a duplicate, the previous registration certificate
issued will become invalid.
We will send out a registration certificate when a new vehicle
owner is registered or if any of the information included on the
registration certificate is changed. If the vehicle is owned by a
minor (person under 18 years of age) who is not authorised to drive
the vehicle, the registration certificate will be sent to the
custodian registered in the Swedish Road Traffic Registry.
Part 1 of the registration certificate – technical
details and other information
Part 1 is sent to the person who owns or uses the vehicle. It is
free and will be sent directly to the address registered in the
Swedish Road Traffic Registry. In cases where the vehicle has a
note regarding leasing, Part 1 of the registration certificate will
be sent to the person using the vehicle (that is, the lessee).
Part 1 of the registration certificate includes the
- an authorisation code that is required if you wish to make an
application via transportstyrelsen.se or via our service
- information about who owns or uses the vehicle,
- information about leasing or credit purchases,
- technical information about the vehicle,
- general information about the vehicle,
- the part that should be used when making a written application
- license a vehicle for use,
- make an off road notification,
- order plates,
- order Part 2 of the registration certificate.
Part 2 of the registration certificate – a valuable
Part 2 is sent to the person who owns the vehicle according to
the Swedish Road Traffic Registry. If the vehicle includes a note
regarding leasing, Part 2 will be sent to the lessor. Part 2 of the
registration certificate is a valuable document and must always be
sent in with an application for a change of ownership, even in
cases where the change of ownership is made to a car dealer.
Part 2 of the registration certificate includes the
- details about the current owner of the vehicle,
- details about previous owners/users of the vehicle (no more
- general information about the vehicle,
- the part that is used when applying in writing for:
- a change of ownership,
Do you require a duplicate of Part 2 of the registration
From and including 1 February 2008, you will be charged SEK 50
or SEK 100 to obtain a duplicate of Part 2 of the registration
certificate, depending on how you choose to order and pay for the
certificate. At the same time, an identity check was introduced to
ensure that the registered owner of the vehicle is the person
placing the order and collecting the certificate.
There are two alternatives:
- You can place an order here on our website and choose
registered cash on delivery or call our service
telephone on +46 (0)771-25 25 25. You can then pay for the
duplicate when you collect it from one of Posten AB's distribution
points within a period of four or five working days. This will cost
SEK 100. Your identity will be checked when you
collect the certificate.
- You can place an order via our website and choose
direct payment (Internet banking or debit card).
This will cost SEK 50. You can use the following
Internet banks: Nordea, SEB and Swedbank; or a MasterCard or Visa
debit card. If you wish to make a direct payment, you must identify
yourself using e-identity. We will send the duplicate directly to
the address registered in the Swedish Road Traffic Registry, which
will take up to two or three working days.
Why is there a charge when ordering a duplicate?
The registration certificate is a valuable document, which
should be looked after carefully. The intention of the charge is to
reduce the number of orders for duplicates at the same time as
ensuring that we can be certain that only the owner of the vehicle
receives the certificate.
These changes were also made to limit the circulation of
registration certificates among the general public.
Will you be travelling abroad with your vehicle? Remember that
you must take your registration certificate with you. If you have a
harmonised EU registration certificate, you will only need to take
Part 1 with you.
Harmonised EU registration certificates since 2004
When you receive a new certificate, you should destroy the old
one. If you have not received a harmonised EU registration
certificate, your old one will still be valid.

Why is there a new registration certificate?
The background to the harmonised EU registration certificate is
a decision made at an EU level that all Member States are to have
similar registration certificates (EU Directive 1999/37/EC). This
will make it easier to check other countries' vehicle details.
It is hoped that the harmonised EU registration certificate will
lead to increased freedom of movement for international road
transport, improved road safety and prevent illegal trade in
What distinguishes the harmonised EU registration certificate
from the old version?
The harmonised EU registration certificate has the same
functions and largely includes the same information as the old one.
These are the most important changes:
- The new registration certificate comprises two documents (Part
1 and Part 2) as opposed to the previous document, which only
comprised one part.
- The new registration certificate has a number of different
security marks that make counterfeiting more difficult, such as
- Part 2 of the registration certificate must be treated as a
- A Certificate of Destruction can no longer be issued on the
registration certificate, but must be provided as a separate
Order a certificate of Destruction (in
- Previous owners of the vehicle will be printed out on Part 2 of
the registration certificate.
