Driving in Denmark - Step 3
Theory and Driving Test

We suggest that you find a local instructor.
The Driving Instructor will assist you in registering for the written theory test. The first written theory test is included in the DKK 260.00 fee for the change of Licence (paid at Borgerservice). If you fail the theory test you will be charged again each time you re-take the test. Therefore, we recommend that you have a few theory lessons at a Driving School prior to taking the test.
Please note that it is NOT required by law that you receive either theory or driving lessons before you take the tests. Nonetheless, many find that a few lessons are helpful – both to get acquainted with the Danish test types and to avoid the most common pitfalls.
The theory test is in Danish and you will need a translator for this and the driving test. The driving instructor can help you find a certified translator. Please be advised that the translator will charge for this service (usually around DKK 1000.00)
Once you have passed the Theory Test, the Driving Instructor can help you make an appointment for a Driving Test. This test cost about DKK 900.00. The Driving School will probably suggest that you have a few lessons with them, which you will be charged for, but again this is NOT required by law.
