It is very expensive to get driver’s license in Japan.
Actually, the license itself is not expensive but going a driving school cost a lot.
To get the license, most people got to driving school and take a lot of classes and skill practice.
It depends on a person how long it takes to finish classes and get the license, but usually it takes 1 to 2 months. And it costs about $2500 or more.
We can have a driving license from 18 years old so many young people prepare the cost by doing a part time job while going to a college or high school or borrow money from their parents.
