Step 1 – Learner’s permit
In order to start practicing driving in Sweden, you’ll have to apply for a Learner’s permit. A Swedish Learner’s permit does not require a test, but only allows practicing with a teacher or private teacher such as a parent or friend.
If you’re applying for a B license you must include a health declaration and an eye test certificate with your application. You can do an eye test at Norra Trafikskolan by booking an appointment Please call 0920-949 99 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org

The Swedish Transport Agency will issue a Learner’s permit if you’re believed to be a suitable driver based on your personal and medical circumstances. A Learner’s permit is valid for five years. This period can’t be extended. If you have not passed a theory test and practical test within this time, you must apply for a new Learner’s permit.
As a student, you only need to take an introductory course if you intend to practice driving privately. Your supervisor also needs to take the introductory course. The course is valid for 5 years for both of you. NOTE! You don’t have to attend the introductory course if you only intend to drive on a traffic school.
