With its developed system of well-maintained roads, driving in Norway is similar to driving in the rest of Western Europe, the UK, and the US. One rule to take note of is that dipped (low beam) headlights are required to be used at all times, even during the day. Also, be sure to check for road closures when driving in winter, as extreme weather or snowfall can cause mountain passes to close.
Like in many other developed countries, the minimum age to rent a car in Norway is 19. However, as is also true in many other countries, drivers under the age of 25 are subject to a surcharge. You can drive in Norway with the driver’s license issued by your home country, but the license must have been valid for at least one year prior to your arrival in Norway.
When renting a car in Norway, be sure to budget adequately for gas, as filling up in this country will be significantly more expensive than getting petrol in the US or in other parts of Europe. A gallon of petrol costs around 63.71 NOK (7.31 USD), while a gallon of petrol in the United States costs around 2.50 USD.
The two most common speed limits in Norway are 50 km/h (31 mph) in urban areas and 80 km/h (50 mph) outside urban areas. However, there are higher and lower speed limits in certain areas: the speed limits on some motorways in the country reach as high as 110 km/h (about 70 mph). Cameras watching for speeding drivers are common in Norway, so be sure to obey the posted limits.
