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.
