If you intend to practice driving privately, you will need to attend an introductory course with the person who is going to teach you before you begin the driving practice. The driver’s training must be led by a certified administrator.
Your instructor needs to attend an introductory course before the Swedish Transport Agency can process your application. The person looking to obtain their licence also needs to complete the introductory course. You need to take the same course, though not necessarily at the same time.
The introductory course will contain information about:
- the goals and contents of the driving licence training
- the rules that apply during driving practise
- how to plan and structure the driving practise
- traffic safety and the surrounding environment
The course takes at least three hours to complete. The instructor receives information about their role and their responsibility during driving practise. Discussions are also held regarding how the instructor and the student might interpret the same traffic situation differently.
