Supervisor training – introduction course for a B driving licence
The introduction course, also known as supervisor training, is a requirement for private driving lessons. The course is based on Vision Zero and is at least 3 hours long. The price is around 300–400 kr per person and the training is valid for 5 years.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the supervisor need to repeat the course with each student (e.g. siblings of different ages)?
– No, since 2010 there is no requirement for the supervisor and student to take the course together. Note, however, that the supervisor training is valid for 5 years, so a supervisor may still need to repeat the course if the deadline has passed.
How old must the student be?
– At least 15 years and 9 months.
How many students is a supervisor allowed to have?
– A maximum of 15 students at a time.
When do we take the course?
– The course must be completed before submitting the supervision application.
Where do we do the course?
– At a traffic school (see a list of approved instructors). The traffic school dictates the price and details of the arrangement, which is why it is not possible to give exact information on price and the division of lesson time.
