It sounds complicated at first, but it’s not! First, you should contact Trafikstyrelsen and have them send you the application form. In the form you have to fill in some information about the starting place, starting period and some information about the equipment. Since this is the same information that is now required for some countries in the EU and our equipment meets all the requirements, you can find all the information on our website or in our instructions and with our products in our shop.
