He illustrates it with a story of him and his son selling a moped:
You fill out a digital purchase contract on the phone, and both parties sign their digital copy with BankID.
For re-registration, you log into The Norwegian Public Roads Administration with BankID, press the “send sales message” button, then all vehicles registered to you appear.
Then you select the vehicle you want to send a sales notification, and your phone and social security numbers are already entered. You then enter the buyer’s social security number, surname, and telephone number, and information about the person concerned is entered.
Then, with one click, you confirm that you want to transfer ownership. The sales notification is submitted.
Within seconds, the buyer is told that he must register as the new owner. One BankID-login and the Ownership has been transferred, and the register has been updated.
The only thing remaining is that the buyer makes the payment (either via Vipps or the excellent payment-rails system).
Think about all the parties involved:
- Norwegian Consumer Council (purchase contract)
- BankID (electronic ID)
- The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Car register and sales message)
- The Norwegian Tax Administration / National Population Register (For filling out social security numbers etc.)
- Vipps and banks (Payment for the transfer)
In other countries, this can’t be done with a digital solution in ~10 minutes. You are talking about a week-long process where the registration takes a lot of time, and you receive the payment in cash.
