About Hognestad Driving School: 

Great visions now and for the future

The traffic school was established in Stavanger in 1946 by Mr Ingebret Hognestad. The school started out with an ordinary car training programme. Over the years the traffic school was further developed and in 1980 MC training was included in the programme. In 2008 the programme was extended to include training for driving a car with trailer (category BE).

In 2011 the traffic school moved from its original location in Kannik to Madlaveien 8, where its base is located today, and a branch was established at Tau. The moped training course was included in the program in 2012, and the year after, in 2013, Hognestad Trafikkskole opened a branch at Ski, which moved into new, modern premises at Ås in 2015.

In 2016 the traffic school included Tractor to the training programmeand and in 2017 Hognestad Driving School opened a new branch in Sandnes. A traffic school under continuous development.
