Körs 5-step plan to get your driver's license this year

Each new year brings new opportunities and promises of personal growth. For many, the idea of getting a driver's license ranks high on the list of desires and ambitions. Perhaps you've postponed it long enough, and 2024 could be the year where you finally take control behind the wheel. Here are 5 steps that will help you on the road to obtaining your license.

Step 1: Familiarize yourself with the path to the license
Before delving into the actual driving training, it's essential to thoroughly understand what is required to obtain a driver's license for a car. Explore the requirements set by the authorities, such as what mandatory hours entail, what is needed to pass the theory test, and any health requirements. Familiarizing yourself with these requirements will give you a clear picture of the road ahead and what is expected of you during the driver's training.

Step 2: Take the first lesson at a driving school
Getting guidance from an experienced driving instructor is invaluable. The teacher will provide specific areas to work on and will be able to give constructive feedback to improve your driving skills. At Kör, you start with an intro lesson, which lasts for 90 minutes and costs 450 kroner. After the lesson, you will see in the app how many hours you need before you are ready for the driving test.

Step 3: Listen carefully to the driving instructor's guidance and what to practice at home
A driving instructor has valuable knowledge and experience that you should take advantage of. Pay close attention to their advice and feedback. They will not only provide technical tips on driving but also share experiences and insights crucial when taking the practical tests. Absorb their teachings and use them when practicing driving at home.

Step 4: Practice a lot
Allocate regular time for practical driving practice. Practice is crucial for building driving skills and confidence. Spend time on the road to become comfortable handling various traffic situations. The more you practice, the better equipped you'll be to handle the challenges that may arise during the actual driving test. You can also use our app to track your practice at home, so the instructor can see what you've practiced.

Step 5: Dedicate time to theory
The road to the driver's license requires time and effort. Set aside regular time for theory. The more you read and practice tasks, the better you'll become. Take regular tests too, to see where you stand. You can practice 600 questions in our app, or a sample of them on our website.

Obtaining a driver's license is a significant milestone that opens doors to increased independence and freedom. By following these five steps and committing to the process, you can easily achieve this goal within 2024. No matter how far it seems, the key is to take the first step - the rest will gradually fall into place.
