Winter Season

Snow Tires Become Obligatory

From December 1st, cars must be equipped with snow tires under winterly weather conditions. And for the first time, snow tires become obligatory even for vehicles with foreign license numbers.

It is up to the police to decide what kind of weather condition is to be considered winterly. The new regulation applies to all cars, vans and trucks and is in effect through March 31st. Studded winter tires are legal in Sweden, too, but some cities have introduced bans of studded tires on certain roads.
