Driver's License - Japanese Style!

Welcome to Ehime Prefecture's Driver's License Center.

Behind the building lies the Seto Inland Sea.


The lecture room. After the applicant is tested for vision, they are given a serious lecture on what has been updated to the traffic laws. For example, it is now required that passengers in the back seat wear seat-belts, as before it was optional. The Japanese take their driving very seriously.

The lecture was punctual and the audience was respectful and no cell phones were allowed. An older gentleman gave the lecture.
