A brief explanation about the Norwegian language: In Norwegian, «bilsertifikat» or «førerkort» is abbreviated to the word «lappen,» which literally means just a piece of paper. Norwegians might ask you if you have «lappen,» but they’re actually asking if you have permission to drive a car. «Mobil» means mobile phone. Together it becomes «Mobillappen,» a term just for fun. You don’t need a certificate to use a phone in Norway.
