Omission Fine

At Aðalskoðun you can pay your omission fine. According to traffic law, a fine of 15000 kr is imposed on vehicles that neglect the annual inspection or the re-inspection.

For the majorirty of vehciles the inspection month is determined by the last number on the licence plate. That means that if the last number of a cars licence plate is 1, the month of inspection is January. The deadline for inspection is two months after the original inspection month so a vehcile scheduled for inspection in January has February and March before the omission-fine is imposed. For a vehicle with 1 as the last number in the licence plate, the omission-fine is therefore imposed on the 1st of April.

Please note that other rules apply to veteran cars, motorbikes and tent campers.

These vehicles are due in July and have August and September in addition. The omission-fine is therefore imposed on the 1st of October.

If a vehicle has a private licence plate ending with a letter, the inspection month is May with June and July in addition. In these cases, omission-fine is imposed on the 1st of August.

If a re-inspection is omitted one month passes before omission-fine is imposed. A vehicle that is inspected in January gets an time limit until the end of February for re-inspection.Therefore an omission-fine is imposed on the 1st of April if re-inspection is omitted.

The following chart shows when the omission-fine is imposed and when the 50{c24cff66eb2951aa154e922a8040335589b5b626f0235bb08e0ad107588ee577} discount expires: 4 Period Date from Date to Date of imposition Due date Final due date.

FAQ

When do I need to bring my car for inspection?

According to the main rule on vehicle inspections, vehicle should be inspected in accordance with the last number in the licence plate. If your car has a licence plate number ending in 1 (AB321 e.g.), you should bring your car for inspection in January each year. However, you also have two additional months before an omission-fine is imposed so the last day to bring that car would be the 31st of March. The 1st of April a 15000 kr omission fine would be imposed. A 50{c24cff66eb2951aa154e922a8040335589b5b626f0235bb08e0ad107588ee577} discount is given throughout April so if you are only a few days late, the fine is 7500 kr. If the car has not been brought before the end of April the fine will be 15000 kr.

You also have to make sure that your car is brought for re-inspection in the right time. If you bring your car for inspection in January and it receives a re-inspection you will need to bring it back before the end of February. If you do not bring it for re-inspection, one month passes before the omission-fine is imposed. In this case, an omission-fine is imposed on the 1st of April.

If you have a vehicle that is registered as a camper, motorbike or a veteran car the rule of last letter in the licence plate does not apply. These vehicles should be brought for inspection in July and have in addition August and September. The omission-fine is therefore imposed on the 1st of October.

Vehicles that have a private number ending with a letter should be brought for inspection in May and have June and July in addition. These vehicles receive the omission-fine at the 1st of August.

What do I need to do to collect my licence plates?

If you have turned in the licence plates in order to deactivate the car you will have to make sure that the insurance is valid and you must pay all vehicle taxes when the numbers are collected. If the plates have been collected by the police due to overdue inspection, you will need to bring the car for inspection in order to be able to get the plates back.

Do I need to make appointment before I bring my car for inspection?

In most cases there is no need to make an appointment. You can drop by at any of our stations when it suits you and you. You can make an appointment at our stations in Hafnarfjörður and in Kópavogur but you can also drop by.

For sales inspections it is however neccecary to make an appointment by calling 5906930.

Please note that no appoitnments are made at any of our stations on the last day of each month. We advise that you bring your car early in the month to avoid traffic that can form at the last days of each month.

When do I need to pay my vehicle tax?

Vehicle taxes are imposed twice a year, on the 1st of January and on the 1st of July. These taxes are due on the 15th of February and the 15th of August. If vehicle taxes have reached their due date when a car is brought for inspection they will have to be paid before inspection.

When changing ownership of vehicles all taxes must be paid, regardless if they have reached their due date or not.

Where can I turn in notifications of change of vehicle ownership?

You can turn in notifications of ownership changes at any inspection station or at Samgöngustofa. All originals are sent to Samgöngustofa for registration. Payment is required for the notification itself as well as all vehicle taxes.
