In Sweden, traffic drives on the right and the minimum driving age is 18 years. Speed limits are 110kph (68mph) on motorways, 70kph (43mph) on other roads outside urban areas, and 50kph (31mph) in towns and cities.
The use of dipped headlights is compulsory in the daytime for cars and motorcycles, as are crash helmets for motorcyclists. Drivers must also carry an emergency warning triangle. Studded tyres are only permitted from 1 October and 15 April, unless road conditions warrant their use outside of these dates.
You must carry a national driving licence and vehicle registration documents at all times. The Swedish authorities do not require drivers to carry a Green Card, but it is advisable.
Assistancekåren (tel: +46 8 627 5757; www.assistancekaren.se) is the country's main motoring organisation and can provide additional information on driving in Sweden.
