As with most things when you first arrive in Japan transferring your drivers license can be a hassle. Unfortunately we can’t actually do it for you, but below you will find all the steps that you need to take in order to transfer your current license to a Japanese License. If you have any questions or problems please contact Mick Lay Motors, we are more than happy to help.
Generally if you live in the centre of Tokyo it will be:
Samezu Driving Test Center
12-5 Higashi Ooi 1-Chome,
The test center is about 10 minutes walk from the Samezu Station on the Keihin-Kyuko Line. Please be careful to take only local trains as express trains would not stop at this station.
The opening hours for accepting application: Mon to Fri 8:30 am to 11 am, 1pm to 3 pm. Please don’t go between 11 am to 1 pm, because you simply have to wait although they are accepting other applications but not the application for converting license.
Note: Depending what country your licenses were issued from you might need to sit written and practical tests.
