In recent years the number of foreign users has increased, and the number of accidents during practice driving has greatly increased at the same time.
There have been cases of inappropriate behavior which have caused inconvenience to other customers.
Several customers have used the driving course without fully understanding the rules of use, which has led to a variety of problems.
Because we wish for our customers, including those from instructional schools and members of the general public, to be able to use the course with peace of mind, and also because we wish to ensure that our students can safely use the course for preparation or review, we have instituted the following requirements for foreign customers.
■Usage Requirements for Foreigners
1. Rental practice vehicles will be rented out to those customers accompanied by a Japanese passenger who has a Japanese driver's license.
2. Those who have a Japanese driver’s license or provisional license, and also deposit 200,000 yen as accident compensation insurance, may use practice vehicles without being accompanied by a license-holding Japanese passenger.
3. In all cases (using a rental vehicle or a customer’s own vehicle), all customers must present their driver’s license or residence card and allow a copy to be taken of it at reception. In addition, customers must write name, address, phone number, company name, company address, and company phone number information for themselves and all passengers.
4. Even if the above requirements are satisfied, we reserve the right to refuse service to any customer in the event that a staff member judges their behavior to be of inconvenience to other customers or of interference to ordinary business.
This rule was implemented on February 1, 2016.
