Stockholm control station

You don't need to stop and pay at the control point!

When you drive your vehicle past a control point, you pass a camera that takes a picture of your vehicle's registration plate.

The picture is sent to the Swedish Transport Agency where the vehicle is identified. Then the Swedish Transport Agency sends a payment slip to the owner of the vehicle if the vehicle is registered in Sweden. 

If the vehicle is registered abroad, the Swedish Transport Agency has entrusted a notification partner to identify the owner of the vehicle, send out invoices to and obtain payments from the owner of the vehicle via EPASS24.

Pay your invoice in time! Otherwise you will be charged an additional 

SEK 500. For more information see here.
