The cost of having the vehicle uninsured
It is illegal to have an uninsured vehicle. The motor insurance charge should be perceived as a sanction and be high enough to prevent anyone gaining from being uninsured.
The charge is based on the insurance companies’ annual premiums for motor third party liability insurance. However, it may not be more than 10 per cent higher than the highest motor third party liability insurance premium in the market (including premium tax).
The charge for a vehicle is based on the annual premiums for vehicles of the same type and with the same manner of use. A difference is made between the type of vehicle (such as passenger car, mc, bus) and the manner of use (passenger car, taxi, hire car). The make, model year, place of residence, bonus, mileage class etc. are not taken into account. The Swedish Motor Insurers' charge table below breaks vehicles down into 19 charge groups.
The charge table is evaluated at least twice per year by Swedish Motor Insurers and is revised as needed, after any changes in insurance companies’ premiums. The process for determining the motor insurance charge is examined every year by Swedish Motor Insurers’ external auditors.
How to read the charge table
Identify the vehicle’s “TFF-code” and go to the table of charges on TFF's Swedish website and find the type of vehicle with the same code. The Swedish table shows the current motor insurance charge per day in SEK for each type of vehicle under the heading "Avgift per dag, kr".
