Is the vehicle travelling in the lane from which the picture is taken permitted to go over into the oncoming lane at point A to overtake another car?

In places where visibility is limited at the crest of a hill or in a curve, overtaking may only take place if the road has at least two lanes in your direction in which there may be no oncoming traffic, or in other cases where the overtaking can be completed without using a lane intended for oncoming vehicles.” (Swedish Road Traffic Ordinance)

A broken line does not automatically mean that overtaking is permitted. Far from all places with limited visibility have solid lines. It would take an excessive effort to go around all the roads in the country to assess whether the visibility is limited, considering the time of year, new trees that could limit the visibility further, etc. For that reason, good judgement precedes the line in this case.

If the vehicle had not gone into the oncoming lane, the answer “Yes, but it is not recommended, as their line of sight is blocked” would be correct. But as it is, the vehicle must cross over into the oncoming lane, which is not permitted according to the quote from the Road Traffic Ordinance.

This is an example of one of the driving theory questions at Körtkortonline.se (also in theory tests in Arabic).

There is also a driving licence book online (2023).
