The club was founded in 1979 as Avtomobilist by the workers of the Motor Depot 13 in Narva. In 1984, the club was promoted to the Estonian SSR Championship, but was relegated at the end of the season. The club returned to the top division in 1987, but was relegated again after finishing the season last. In 1989, the club changed its name to Autobaas and returned to the top division once again. In 1992, the club changed the name to Narva Trans and became founding members of the new Meistriliiga, finishing the inaugural season in seventh place. Narva Trans finished the 1994–95 season in third place. The club made their European debut in the 1996 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Narva Trans won their first trophy in the 2000–01 Estonian Cup.
