Losing Your Driver’s License on a Bicycle

The number of bicycle-related accidents have been on the increase and understandably, accidents involving bicycles has a higher tendency to result in either serious injuries or deaths. So much so that the government has implemented several rules to riding on the roads such as the one mentioned in this post.

A new law is underway to take this even further by stipulating that all those holding a driver’s license caught performing illegal acts on a bicycle can result in suspension of the driver’s license or even revocation.

Remember, it’s not cheap to get a driver’s license in Japan and worse, if you’re a foreigner, it’ll be very difficult for you to get the license again as they may even reject your application to retake the test.
