Sweden is one of Europeís most expensive countries when it comes to getting a driverís license. Itís twice as expensive as England and Ireland, for instance. Only in Norway and Denmark does a driverís license come with a heftier price tag, according to EFA, the European Driving Schools Association.
However, according to an investigation by Ikano Bank, if a person invests 15,000 SEK ($2,243) in getting a license and that means going from zero to a monthly salary of 20,000 SEK ($2,992), then he or she has earned the investment within 29 days. And if a driverís license leads to a job with 500 SEK ($75) more per month, then that income becomes a total of 164,132 SEK ($24,553) higher over a 40-year period.
