Tips to pass practical driving exam


Lessons are focused on topics needed for passing the license test in one try!


We often encounter examinees who, after actually taking the test at a testing center, were told reasons for failing by the examiner such as “your blinker...” or “your checking for safety was insufficient...”

Almost no one understands the key points for passing like “what should I watch out for,” so in most cases they fail.

An easy-to-understand explanation of key points for passing.

I think it’s very regrettable that a surprisingly small number of people actually pass due to reasons such as not understanding the trick to passing, or not finding a good instructor.

At our company, we work hard to communicate those key points for passing, for the sake of those who take the test to convert a foreign driver's license at a testing center.

Lessons are carefully thought out so you can pass in a short time!
Following the test process from beginning to end, the manual uses easy-to-understand illustrations to explain the driving methods required during the test!

You will learn “what must I do?” to pass the test.

The explanation follows the procedure from the beginning to the end of the test,
covering points such as

“____ riding in the test vehicle”
“Walk around the vehicle and do ___!”
“Fasten your seatbelt before ____”
and “Never do ____ during the test.” etc. etc.

Be prepared to be graded on a point system!

During the test, all driving by the examinee is graded using a point score.

Here, let’s take a look at the grading criteria.

1 : The test is evaluated using a point deduction system.
2 : When the test is started, the examinee has 100 points.
3 : To pass, the score must be 70 or higher at the end of the test.
4 : There are four types of deductions: 5 points, 10 points, 20 points, and termination of test(immediate fail due to the pertinent item).

Examples of frequent deductions

10-point deduction

Reason for deduction: Did not check safety by turning head, even when being the first car through an intersection with a traffic signal.
Honest impression of person who failed: “I was trying to be cautious, but I didn’t know the timing when I should turn by head!”

20-point deduction

Reason for deduction: There was determined to be too little distance with the preceding car while waiting for a traffic signal.
Honest impression of person who failed: “I wasn’t even aware of it, and thought I was doing fine because no one had pointed it out to me, even in private driving.”

Termination of test (Must take test again, even if other aspects of driving were fine)

Reason for deduction: It was determined that I did not yield to a car traveling on a road with the right-of-way coming from another direction at an intersection.
Honest impression of person who failed: “The distance wasn’t such that there wouldn't be an accident, and I thought I had left enough distance. Why did this happen?”


Almost everyone who has taken the test without taking specialized lessons at our company has the problem: “Under ordinary circumstances, I can drive safely without paying attention to those things. Why did I fail?”

What you need to understand here is that, if you don’t understand the evaluation criteria, you can easily lose points through deductions. Altogether, there are about 120 evaluation criteria.

Almost all examinees who fail do so because they don’t understand the nature of these criteria.
The reasons why customers support our service are as follows:

The specifics of the evaluation criteria are incorporated into the Manual for Success, and we explain these well to our customers.

Customers become able to determine, on their own, the driving methods required by examiners during the test, and the differences from ordinary driving methods.

At our company, we give lessons taking the above two points to be the most important elements of passing the license test the first time.
