Note

  • When your driver's license was revoked or rejected, or you were prohibited from driving with your international driving permit for more than six months but you didn't attend a lecture for drivers whose license has been revoked, you are not qualified for an examination. However, if you obtained a new driver's license (except for a temporary driver's license) after revocation, you are qualified. If you have an illness, you have to report your condition or symptoms so that we can judge your competency to drive safely or not.
  • Personal information such as permanent address or driver's license number is recorded into the IC chip of the driver's license. Since this is very important information, a security code number is necessary in order for us to prevent unlawful use of the personal information. Please prepare two sets of a four digit security number when you come to apply.
