Update on driving license situation

6 Comments Driving license (Sweden), Move to Sweden

We attended part 1 of the mandatory risk education yesterday and it was actually a waste of time. Nothing new was mentioned that we didn’t know before so I don’t really get why it’s mandatory. I can see how it might be more useful when you’re 17-18 years old and have less life experience in general (but even then it’s a bit iffy) but there were people in all ages in the class and I’m sure most of them found it pretty useless. The seminar went on for 3 hours and at least where we went it was 600 SEK.

Risk education Part 1

8 Comments Driving license (Sweden), Move to Sweden

I mentioned in an earlier post (HERE) that it’s time for Simon to get a Swedish license and today I called around trying to find a driving school or other authorised instructor that holds part 1 of the risk education (that’s mandatory to attend before getting a license) in English. It seemed like mission impossible even though I tried both Göteborg and Malmö. No one even knew about anyone that did it so after speaking to five different people and only being given the advice that Simon can bring an interpreter (read me) with him to the course we’re now booked in for the course in two weeks.

Swedish driving license

1 Comment Driving license (Sweden)

As an Australian you’re allowed to drive on your Aussie license for a year. After that you have to get a Swedish one. As I understand it’s pretty easy for us Swedes to swap our Swedish one for an Aussie one in Australia but that’s not the case in Sweden. Since Simon’s one year limit is coming up I’m trying to find out what Simon needs to do.  I mean I can’t believe that he has to take a lot of driving lessons, after all he knows how to drive. But he has to take the written theory test and to the other mandatory parts. Anyone with experience about this who knows how to go about it?
