License recovery

Driving ban – drivers with license less than 3 years

If due to specific traffic violations the license is lost by a person who has had a license less than 3 years then the person is granted with either driving ban or unconditional license loss.

In the case of driving ban there is a requirement for special driving lessons which include at least 8 theory lessons and 8 practical lessons.
The period for teaching cannot be less than 8 days.

This type of teaching puts a specific focus on following topics:

  • Behaviour in traffic
  • Ground rules for car driving
  • Road maneuvers
  • Specific risk conditions

To accept your application for getting your license back, the police requires a certificate from you that you’ve passed the course ”ANT -kursus” if the license is lost due to alcohol, use of narcotics or strong medicin. The license is recovered after the passing of both a theory test and practical test.

 For drivers with license for more than 3 years

If the police has a reason to assume that a driver no longer meets conditions for having driving license, the police is entitled to remove/ keep the license or ask the driver to do a controlling test (both theory and practical tests).

Due to the size of traffic violation, the license can be lost conditionally or unconditionally.

When the traffic law is violated then the financial fee is issued and penalty point in form of a clip is given.

A single clip is given if a driver puts others into danger.
3 clips within a period of 3 years lead to conditional license loss.
