Test Course Maps
Below are the course maps that have been used for the driving test at the Akita Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre (秋田県免許センター; Akita-ken menkyo sentā). The day's course will be posted in the waiting room under the label 外国免許 ("foreign licenses"; gaikoku menkyo). The course will remain the same for the entire day, but will change from day to day. Maps on this page have been photographed by JETs. If you have a picture of another map, please update or email the admin!
