Update: Getting a Japanese Driver’s License

Hello JETs, I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

The “Getting a Japanese Driver’s License” page on the website has been updated.

As of March 2017, Fukuoka and Kitakyushu City Driver’s License Centers no longer administer driver’s license converstion practical skills test (driving test). They only handle license conversions that do not require a driving test. To take the test, you must now go to Chikuho or Chikugo Driver’s License Centers. (See the Fukuoka Prefectural Police website for more information in Japanese)

Please be aware of this when you are preparing to convert your driver’s license.
