Driver's license category B

Safety check for the driver's license in Norway

The driving test for category B is divided into three parts: preparation of the vehicle, the safety check, and the actual driving.

Preparation of the vehicle
Preparing the vehicle is about being able to adjust the seat, mirror and steering wheel correctly, know how to turn on the wipers, regulate heat in the passenger compartment and other important aspects of the car's features.

The safety check
The safety check takes place before the driving starts. The examiner will usually only ask you one question from the list, but sometimes they have follow-up questions.

Important topics to memorize are:
  • weights/cargo
  • brakes, tires
  • lights
  • steering
  • other miscellaneous knowledge - you can for example be asked to find and set up the warning triangle.

We have collected all the safety check questions with answers and examples, and divided them into categories, so that it is easier for you to understand and carry out the safety check in your final driving test.
