Being a safe driver is vital in traffic. To be so, it’s wise to take thorough training at a driving school (to get plenty of practice, those who are able should also supplement the driving school lessons with private practice).

To get a driving license, you need both thorough theory (including the obligatory Risk Education part 1) and plenty of practice in the form of driving lessons to become confident in everything from parallel parking to highway driving. And remember, if you’re going to practice driving privately at home, you and your accompanying driver must first complete an introduction course (valid for 5 years).

Find the right driving school in Stockholm

Anyone who has driven a car in Stockholm, especially in rush hour traffic, knows that it can often be a challenge. Cars everywhere, lane changes, one-way streets, and closed roads are just a few examples of things to master. At the same time, you should find your way (often with the help of GPS). In those situations, you need to feel safe and secure behind the wheel. And the way to get there is a good traffic school.

Stockholm is full of driving schools for those who want to get their license. But with so many options, it’s not always easy to find the right driver’s training. So, to help you navigate the driving school jungle, we’ve put together a guide to driving schools in Stockholm that’ll prepare you for the test. You’ll need a valid learner’s permit – then it’s just to start learning. Good luck with your license and take it easy in the streets!






Södermalms Trafikskola

Södermalms Trafikskola is a veteran among the city’s driving schools. Ever since 1949, they have been training Stockholmers to become skilled drivers. Everyone is welcome here, regardless of their level of knowledge. In other words, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never been behind the wheel or if you’ve done a lot of driving privately but want to supplement it with structured driving lessons with a professional driving school instructor. Here, you’ll meet competent, educational, and dedicated driving instructors who can train you in both automatic and manual gearboxes.

The most common approach is to book a first test lesson at a reduced price and then get advice on a further course that suits you. After this start, you can then choose between several different driving lesson packages with or without theory – either spread over a longer period or as an intensive course. In addition to driving lessons, Södermalms Trafikskola also offers theory courses such as Risk Education part 1 (“Riskettan”) and supervisor courses. In addition, they have driving license training in English.
