Hi, I will be living near karlstad in 1 month. (Moving with my long-time swedish gf and child.
A few things I was wondering about...
1. Voting - When will I be allowed to vote in the Swedish system?
I know I can still vote in the UK general election for 15 years, but can I have both?
If so is this fair? What are your opinions?
2. I will be buying a car and a motorcycle over there, and will obviously need to drive it. Will I be able to be insured before getting my "number"(obviously my gf can get insurances, can she add me?)
3. My gf has said that you don't accumulate penalty points on a driving licence? So how does this work?
Just thought I would add...
I have been visiting Sweden with my other half since 1996, and love it. I have been very lax in not learning Swedish, but I intend to go to the SFI as soon as possible.
I am very much looking forward to the space, and clean air...permanently.
(Not so much the price of beer in pubs though
