Important information

Once you receive your learner’s permit you are all set for the driving practice. Driving practice can be performed at the driving school or free of charge with a parent or a friend of yours (in other words - a supervisor, ‘handledare’ in Swedish). It’s up to you to decide which way you choose to practice. You can also combine both the driving school lessons and personal supervisor. 

In order to take driving lessons you must meet the following requirements:

  • you must hold a valid learner’s permit
  • you must be at least 16 years old if you will only be driving a car
  • you must be at least 17 years and 6 months old if you will be driving a light lorry
  • you must be at least 17 years and 6 months old if you will be driving with a light trailer in tow

Note that lessons leading to a moped licence may only be given by an authorised instructor and you must be at least 14 years and 9 months old.

Who can be your supervisor?
Your supervisor (handledare) can be anyone who has a driving licence for at least 5 years and who is at least 24 years old 

In order to become a supervisor one needs to apply for a permission to become a supervisor – handledarbevis. The price currently is 170 SEK, and the application form can be found at the website of the Swedish Transport Agency. Both you and your supervisor will need to take an introductory course (introduktionsutbildning), which is usually offered by the driving schools. 

Both the theory test and the driving test can be taken on the same day. You will start with the theory test, and regardless of the result, you may proceed with the driving test. The driving test takes about 25 minutes. 

During the driving test the following driving skills are evaluated:  

  • vehicle control
  • application of traffic rules knowledge
  • reactions in different traffic situations
  • application of eco driving techniques 

It is your responsibility to arrange a dual control car for your driving test. It is possible to borrow the one from the driving school, or to rent one. You can either rent one or borrow one from your driving school. The only possible language for the driving test is Swedish, however you may get the instructions in English, if you nicely ask your instructor about it. If you are not sure you can handle the test in Swedish, it might be a good idea to bring an interpreter with you to the test. 

You can book your theory and driving tests at the official portal of Swedish Transport Department at

A pass on a theory test or driving test is valid for two months. If the validity of either of the tests expires, you have to retake the test again. It is recommended to book both tests at the same time. When you pass both tests, you will receive your driving licence within 5 days. You can book your theory test at the official portal of Swedish Transport Department.

The purpose of risk training is to familiarize the student with the risks in traffic, the types of driving behaviour that can lead to dangerous situations and to inform how this can be avoided.

The risk training course is compulsory and consists of 2 parts:

  • Part 1 is devoted to the danger of alcohol and other drugs as well as tiredness and risky behavior
  • Part 2 refers to safety, control of speed and driving in special conditions. 

Both parts of the risk training course must be completed and valid when you take the theory and the driving test. If you have previously held a driving licence but it was withdrawn, you will have to complete the risk education again before you can take your driver test. Risk training can be done with any instructor approved by the Swedish Transport Agency. Driving schools offer risk education for their students. If you are not using services of a driving school, you must contact an approved instructor yourself at

You can start learning the theory before or in parallel with your driving lessons. In fact, you can start your theorytest practice here right now!

On this website you will find a theorybook and a variety of theory test practices divided into the official categories, same as in the actual test. We provide the latest edition of the driving theory and our questions are revised every year. Start practising now!

Before you start preparations for your theory and driving test you should get a learners permit (körkortstillstånd).
Simply follow these steps:

  • Apply for a learner’s permit online at the official portal of Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen). You will need your personal security number to do this.
  • Together with the application form you need to sign the declaration confirming that you do not have any illnesses that might affect your driving ability.
  • You will also need an eye test certificate.
  • Pay the application processing fee (220 SEK). 

Once obtained, your learner’s permit will be valid for 5 years.
