"the Police, the Swedish transport agency, Swedish transport administration and the Swedish Tax agency carried out a joint operation in which the Södertäljepolisen randomly stopped both red - and grönskyltade cars. Red övningskörningsskylt means that the car is linked to a driving school; the green signs they have as a learner in private."
"Of forty controlled cars was discovered six cases where it is suspected that illegal driving education has been conducted."
"– some have bought old körskolebilar and has dual controls, a part run in regular cars, " says Magnus Köhler on Södertäljepolisen."
"He notes that it is about black money."
"– But also that these persons do not have any training. Pass the learners driving test so they come out in traffic as worse drivers."
"that was suspected of illegal driving and permissive of illegal driving. Some of the students had a driving test booked, but in several cases have körkortstillståndet now been withdrawn."
"– Those who declared themselves to be teachers will be reviewed by the Tax and other authorities, so they may come to be suspected of additional crimes, " says Magnus Köhler."
"It is not possible to say that the phenomenon of illegal driving schools have increased, but the Swedish transport administration to believe that it is more common in municipalities where students can do uppkörningsprov. The police in Södertälje is not the last – the authorities are mobilizing to continue the work with to access the illegal driving schools."
