Frequently asked questions
Basic traffic course should give you a better traffic understanding and prepare you to be able to practice driving.
The course consists of 5 gatherings, 3 of them are theory lessons, 1 is a first aid course and 1 is the night driving course.
When the course has been completed, you will receive a certificate that must be brought with you for all practice driving and for driving lessons in a school car. If you take the course in the summer, you will first receive a temporary certificate, which is valid in the summer season, until you receive a invitation to night driving in late autumn. A new certificate can be obtained when the dark demo has been completed.
No, the course will prepare you to start your drivers training. In fact, it is not allowed to drive a car until you have completed the basic traffic course, if you are under the age of 25.
If you are under the age of 25, you will need a basic traffic course before you can start practicing at home or take lessons in a school car.
If you are over 25 years old, you only need the first aid course and the night driving course. These courses may be completed in parallel with driving lessons. You should always bring a valid id when you practice driving at home and for the driving lessons at the traffic school.
If you take a basic traffic course in the summer, you will be invited to take a dark demo in late autumn.
In the meantime, you will be issued a temporary course certificate, so that you can practice driving without the dark demo in place.
A new certificate can be obtained when the night driving has been completed.
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will send a course certificates to you by post, but this can occasionally take some time.
You can also find the certificate digitally by logging in to your page on www.vegvesen.no. This is available from the moment the traffic school has reported your course completion.
If you use the digital certificate, you must log in and show off the website in the event of a control. A printout or screenshot of the certificate is not considerd as a valid proof of course completion.
Remember to always bring with you a photo ID, as well as course certificates, when practicing at home and your driving lessons.
As the teaching must be individually adapted, the total price per driver's license varies. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration believes that a student should have around 140 hours behind the wheel to be ready for a driving test. The reason is that you need to gather experiences to be able to make good decisions in traffic. A student who does not practice driving at home mey need more lessons with a teacher, compared with a student who drives a lot at home.

Your teacher needs to know what level you're at before he or she can book you in on the mandatory lessons. For example, you cannot have the assessment for step 2 until you have shown the teacher that you handle the car well technically.
Everyone must have regular driving lessons at both levels 2 and 3. The need for regular driving lessons is individual, and the traffic instructor continuously assesses how many hours you need at each level.
The traffic school is not allowed to guarantee you to finish at a certain time. Some need a lot of time to achieve the goals in the curriculum, others need less. This is often related to how much you practice at home. Everything from 3 months to one year is concidered a normal amount of time to spend on your driving training.
If you want driving lessons in a traffic simulator, you can start already when you are 15 years old. We can take you through key parts of the training even before you are 16, to give you an extra good preparation before you go out on the road.
Class B training starts with a regular driving lesson in a traffic simulator or school bus. Just give us a hint as to when you want to get started, and we'll do what we can to accommodate this.
Feel free to send us an email, call or use the contact form on our website.
Remember that if you are under 25, you need a basic traffic course before you start practice driving / training in a car.
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration recommends that you start practice driving when you are 16 years old. But at Way you can start driving in a traffic simulator even before you are 16 years old. Here we can take you through key parts of the traffic training so that you are even better prepared when you first go out on the road.
The theory test can be taken no earlier than 6 months before you meet the age requirement for the desired driving license class. For class B it will be 17.5 years.
We recommend that you take the theory test as early as possible, as it is an advantage to have a good knowledge of theory when you undertake practical training.
Before you take the theory test, you must have registered an application for a driving license. Apply for a driving license by logging in to Din side at www.vegvesen.no. Once the application is registered, you can take the theory test.
Once you have passed the theory test, you can submit a power of attorney for booking a driving test. You do this on Your page at www.vegvesen.no.
Book an appointment for the theory test on the Norwegian Public Roads Administration's website. Remember to bring a valid ID and money to pay the theory test fee.
Before you are assigned a driving test, you must authorize the traffic school. Once we have received your authorization, we will order a driving test for you, as long as you are close to achieving the goals in the curriculum.
It is always the driving instructor who decides whether you are ready for a driving test.
The traffic simulator is a good supplement to the traditional teaching out in the car. Both new learning and self-driving can be done in a safe and fun way in a traffic simulator. We can also give you practice on challenging tarfical situations, which you would rather avoid out on the road. Some students enjoy driving a traffic simulator and take many hours in it. Others think it's okay to take several hours out by car. It is entirely up to each individual student to decide how they want to combine the use of a traffic simulator and school car in their training. We set up a good dialogue, so you get it the way you want.
The mandatory lessons must be driven in a traditional school car, on the road. The same goes for the driver's test.
Preferably, customers pay on an ongoing basis on the student site www.tabs.no. You can pay via online banking, bank card or vipps.
If the training is not paid in advance or on the day of the training, an invoice will be sent. All invoices are subject to an invoice fee of NOK. 69.
