Instructions for using e-services in transport matters

Transport matters in e-services

  • The My e-Services portal, which requires identification, includes vehicle information, registration and tax services as well as services concerning driving licences. 
  • Public services, which do not require identification Some of the services can be used online, while others require you to print out the documents and send them by post.
  • In addition to the e-services channel, you can visit the service points of Traficom's service provider or manage your issues by post, depending on the service you are using.

Specific instructions for each service are available on our website under 'Services' .

Logging in to the portal

Private customers log in and verify their identity using the Finnish government's shared identification service. Traficom allows identification through bank identifiers, a mobile certificate or a certificate card of the Population Register Centre.

Organisations log in using the KATSO service or the identification service. The institutional roles of the service in Traficom's My e-Services portal include:

  • Self-employed
  • Managing director
  • Deputy managing director
  • Partner
  • Chair of the board

For more information about the identification, see the state's joint Public Service Info (External link)

Different levels of authorisation can be granted to employees in the KATSO service, which is intended for organisations. The authorisation enables using e-services that require identification. You can set up the KATSO identification service at (External link). The KATSO identification system enables the organisations to independently authorise their employees to play different roles in the My e-Services portal. Trafi's roles in the KATSO service include:

  • Administrator/ Co-administrator

The organisation may also select electronic invoicing as a method of payment in some services. You may start using e-invoices after the organisation's main user adds an e-invoicing address for the organisation in the section "Organisation's details".

Supporting documents

Some online services require supporting documents to be sent as an attachment. To attach documents, you can either scan them or take a photograph of them, for example with your smartphone.

Service-specific instructions

Specific instructions for each service are available on our website under 'Services' . The descriptions can also be found within My e-Services, under Instructions. More detailed instructions can be found after logging in.

Obstacles to using e-services

There are reasons why e-services may be unavailable. One is that the status of a service has been set as "passive" for a user within My e-Services. This may, for example, be because the user's vehicle is recorded as having an alteration prohibition in the register.

Data protection

Data in the portal is transferred over a secured connection (SSL). A security audit has been performed on the portal.

General terms of use

Users must approve the Terms and Conditions of Service before they can view their data and make use of the My e-Services portal. The approval is given when logging in. The terms can be viewed in advance here .
