– We've worked hard to cope with more people who wanted to sit their test. But then corona came along, says Kristina Hagberg, head of the department for driving tests at Trafikverket.

If you book a time for a driving test now, you will have to wait until September before you can do the written part of the test. This is because of restrictions in connection with the corona pandemic. Trafikverket has reduced the number of people in each test group in order to keep to the distancing recommendations and protect clients and staff from infection.

Don't skimp on your studies, get in a lot of practice and get help from a driving-school – so that you know that you are ready to sit your test

Even before the corona pandemic broke out there were already changes in the rules for driving-licences. A person wishing to get a standard driving-licence must pass the written theory test before sitting the practical test.

Because of the long queues Transportstyrelsen has extended the time between a successful theory test and the practical test from four to six months.

But waiting-times to resit the test can be even longer. So the advice is to come to the test well prepared.
