In France the equivalent is the 'control technique' - first one after four years and every two years thereafter. It does not apply to bikes so you can ride on baldy tyres with no shock absorbers - but you are still restricted to a maximum of one hundred horsepower. I believe the timing is the same as Norway.
In the UK first MOT test is after three years and every year after that for cars and bikes - no power limit. MOT testing is linked to DVLA (Drive Vehicle Licensing Authority) as is insurance and road tax. There are traffic cameras with automatic number plate recognition all linked to DVLA. If you are recorded on the road without valid insurance, MOT or road tax the court summons will be sent to your home address.
