Getting help from a driving school
In Sweden, you can choose whether you want to train to get your driving licence on your own, or if you want help from a driving school. However, it’s very difficult to get the knowledge you need just learning by yourself, even if you have a licence from another country. We can see this from the statistics on how many learners pass their test. Learners who take driving school lessons have a much better chance of passing. If you choose to do your training at a driving school, the school will register you for your driving test when you’re ready.

The advantages of a STR-affiliated driving school
When you choose a driving school that’s affiliated with the Swedish National Association of Driver Trainers (STR), you can be sure you’re learning at a school with all the right permits. You can also be sure that your school can offer you effective, methodical training that will help you get your licence as quickly as possible.
Find a STR-affiliated driving school near you. You can also search for schools that offer training in English.
STR is your guarantee as a consumer & student
STR-affiliated driving schools have promised to meet a long list of requirements. While some of these involve obeying laws and regulations, they also include making sure to give you, the student, a clear understanding of what’s involved in your training, such as what it all costs, for example. Your driving school must also offer you a well-planned, well-prepared training course.
If you’re dissatisfied with your driving school despite these requirements, you can always contact STR’s Complaints Committee for help.
Beware of illegal driving schools!
Sweden currently has a problem with illegal driving schools. These often attract learners with cheap deals. While low prices may be appealing, there are many risks involved in choosing to train with an illegal driving school. You may end up causing yourself serious problems and losing your money. When you enrol in an illegal driving school, you aren’t protected by Sweden’s Consumer Sales Act or any insurance policies. What’s more, you might also be guilty of breaking the law.
