I’ve missed something crucial when it comes to the driving license process. Despite the fact that Simon has a valid Australian driving license he still needs a provisional driving license, a learner’s permit (in Swedish Körkortstillstånd). It’s apparently compulsory to be allowed to do the driving test as well as drive with the driving school. I was naive to believe that since he’s allowed to drive on the roads using his valid Aussie license he didn’t need it. Anyway, we’ve sent in the application, paid the fee of 220SEK and now he has to send in a certificate of an eye exam in order to get it processed. The eye exam can be done with any optician, doctor or sometimes even with the driving school.
