Handledarkurs in Stockholm - take your Driving Introduction Course in English

The Course to practice driving at home – learn at the coolest venue in town!


If you want to practice driving at home before going for your Swedish driving license, both you and your selected supervisor (mum, friend, partner, etc) must attend an Introduction Course (‘Handledarkurs’).

This course is compulsory if you plan on driving privately – you don’t need to take it if you are only driving with a school.

Thankfully, you can take your Intro course at our state-of-the-art facilities on Kungsholmen, Stockholm or at Högsbo in Göteborg – including a great fika!

After the course…

Be sure to apply to receive your permit after you have completed your Handledarkurs with us!

Time and Price

The driving Introduction Course in English is available in Stockholm and Gothenburg. It’s held on a weekday evening, so students and supervisors can attend after school or work. The course is about 3.5 hours long and the price of the course includes a fika (unavailable during Covid-19 restrictions!) and all course materials. You must book your attendance in advance.

Who needs to take the Introduction course?

The Introduction Course is compulsory for students who want to be able to practice driving a car privately. BOTH the student driver AND the supervisor need to attend an Introduction Course to be approved to train at home.

You do NOT need to attend the Introduction Course if you intend to practice solely with a professional driving school.

You also do NOT need to attend the Introduction Course if you are intending to practice driving on vehicles other than a car.

What happens in an Introduction course?

Using group-learning techniques, driving students and their supervisors cover:

  • What’s involved in private driving training
  • Best and safest practices when driving
  • How to structure home-training
  • Tips to maximise your chances of passing the test, first time.

Are you eligible to be a supervisor??

If you wish to attend a course as a supervisor, please be sure you meet the requirements:

  • Must be 24 years old or older
  • Must have a valid Swedish driving license or a driving license from an EEA country
  • Must have had a driving license for a car (license B) for at least five years

You cannot be approved as a supervisor if:

  • Your driving license was revoked for more than three months in the last three years for breaching a serious traffic law, such as speeding or running a red light.
  • Your driving license has been revoked sometime in the last three years due to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Limitations were placed on your driving license during the last three years, including Alcohol Ignition Interlock devices.
  • You have previously been authorised to supervise 15 driving students.


What certification is given after the course?

When the driving student and supervisor have both successfully completed the Introduction course with us, all attendees are registered with the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen).

The supervisor should then visit Transportstyrelsen’s website and apply for their supervisor certificate.

It normally takes a week to receive the supervisor certificate and it is valid for 5 years.

Note: Student drivers and supervisors do not need to attend the course at the same time, but both need to be registered with Transportstyrelsen before you can obtain your certificate.

IMPORTANT: The supervisor’s certificate and driving license must ALWAYS be present in the car whenever training.
