Summary of note in Billed Bladet #06, 2017.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Nikolai is learning to drive. He is attending lessons at a driving instructor. That is confirmed by Joachim: "Yes, Nikolai has begun to take driving lessons at a driving instructor".

Joachim also urge people in Copenhagen to stay inside for the next few months while Nikolai is roaming the streets...

I'm a bit late, but I adore the birthday photos of Athena. She's such a little cherub and I like her top and little red bow a lot. I think this photo is my favourite because to me, it really captures her personality.
I can't believe she's 5 already! I hope she had a lovely birthday.

Good luck to Nikolai. An exciting time getting your driver's license.

Do we know when Felix will do his confirmation?

How old do you have to be to drive in Denmark ? He is almost eighteen, would have thought he would already be driving. But guess thinking by Canadian standards.

But Joachim sounds a lot like my dad when I started learning

You have to be 18 to receive a drivers license to drive a car alone. However the government just made a new law, that means you are alowed to get a licence and drive a car when you are 17 IF you sit next to someone in the car, that is an experienced driver.

In Portugal you can start having lessons with 17 years old, but you need to be 18 years old when you go to the exams to get the driver's license. So it's no surprise to me that he is learning how to drive at 17 years old.

Wow, here is sixteen, and some places still old farm laws, fifteen for drivers license. That is driving alone. You get what's called a learners permit at fifteen, which is what you described for seventeen, having to have a driver with you. In the past few decades laws got a bit stronger in some provinces, meaning if you had a full license but driving less than two years there were restrictions like time of day.

Same in Germany. The adult, who has to be defined beforehand, will be checked by traffic authorities because only persons with zero 'points' (for traffic offences) are allowed.

If the youngster will cause any accident or notable offence in the next 2 years, the punishment will be severe, from having the licence withdrawn to having to do it again. Also, for youngsters there is zero promille regarding alcohol. So it's very strict.

Here in England 17 is the official starting age for driving, however mobility benefit can be claimed at 16 if needed. So it didn't surprise me that Nikolai is starting to learn already. Hopefully the people of Copenhagen won't need to stay indoors when he's out on the roads!

Nice that they release a picture. I think Nikolai could have attended but maybe he is still in school. Nice that the brothers have their own foundation

17-årige prins Nikolai har bestået den store prøve: Nu må han sætte sig bag rattet | BT Royale - www.bt.dk

Nikolai has got his drivers license.

However, under the new rules, Nikolai must, until he turns 18, only drive when there is a person with a drivers license in the car who is at least 30.

Those are great photos of the two brothers and it's nice that Nikolai was included. Felix is growing up into quite a handsome young man.
