Renewal from a foreign license to a Japanese license is not easy.
外国で取得した運転免許証を日本の運転免許証に切り替えるには（How to switch from a foreign driver’s license to a Japanese driver’s license）
There are two tests for license renewal
The first is a written exam.
It is a simple test about Japanese traffic rules. It is in English.
Answer with ⚪︎ for correct and ✖︎ for incorrect.
You must pass this written exam to take the driving test.
The second is a driving test
It is conducted at the driving school.
It is a very difficult test.
This is because Japanese traffic rules are very strict even by global standards.
Many people take the exam twice or three times.
It is very unlikely that you will pass the test knowing nothing about it.
At the Asahi Driving School, we use the actual course used for the test and give lessons on the points to pay attention to in the driving test.
Our instructors at the Asahi Driving School speak English, so you should be fine.
An administrator who speaks only Japanese
The actual test is conducted by an administrator who speaks only Japanese.
If you do not speak Japanese at all, you must also understand the English pronunciation spoken by the Japanese.
