None of them have a license, so most likely none of them know how to drive. I think I remember at least one of them saying that they did want to learn, though. But yeah, a person in Japan actually doesn't need to know how to drive; you can practically get to any place by solely using public transportation. Also, as shown in many videos, the girls get driven around in cars/vans/buses when heading to studios, venues, or such.

^^ Hmm, doesn't Rina drive? She said once in a blogpost last year or the year before that about driving and listening to the Beatles songs at the same time. I think she drove to a radio recording with Haruna or something like that.

But, Tomomi's new years resolution is actually to get her license on the first go lol. She said it during this week's SCANOMICS.

But Jade is right; public transport in Japan is extremely efficient to the extent that you don't really need a car or any other vehicle in that manner to be able to live well and fully. Happy

I don't remember her saying that, haha. I really don't think RINA drives, though (she's been in the band since she was 15; I doubt she's properly had the chance to learn how to drive + take the license test). If she did mention "driving," I would think she probably meant that they were being driven, not that she was doing the actual driving.

^^ Mmmhh, good points there. I do recall that the minimum age to drive in Japan is 18 (or maybe 20 which coincides with the coming of the age) but at that age, I imagine Rina would've been quite busy with band activities. Anyway, I did find the blogpost so you can take a look if you'd like. Happy Maybe my interpretation or the translator's was just different.

So does this mean that TOMOMI will try to get the license this year?

Why would RINA not had the time to get hers? It looks you just need to take the practical exam, surely this doesn't take days ^^

From RINA's actual words in Japanese, I don't get the impression that she does actually drive. She said, "Doraibu mechakucha suki. Kuruma suki." ("I love taking a drive. I love cars.") Those are fairly simple sentences, and, in my opinion, they don't mean much more than RINA likes taking drives, not that she likes to drive herself. I still believe that she doesn't know how to drive nor has her license.

Learning how to drive takes time. Like I said, I don't see how she would have had any time to properly learn when they hardly had any downtime during the past 7-8 years. The driving test in Japan is apparently pretty hard to pass, too.

Oh you are surely right, I think the same too, but I mean it seems you don't NEED to take anything else than the final test so it's possible she trained with a friend/family members on some days over several months. I mean she could have trained when she had some time, even if it takes her months.

But again I doubt it too, it takes time and all and RINA would have probably talked about it in her blogs, or at least mention it once because she shares a lot of things and I doubt getting her license would have been a huge secret so it's fair to assume she, and no one from SCANDAL, has it.

That's what I thought as well. The blog sentences were easy enough even for me, who has basic knowledge of Japanese, to decipher. She didn't actually say she was the one driving; just a person who likes to go on drives. Just a translation mishap. After all, Japanese is one of those tricky broad languages that can easily be interpreted differently.

With all the events they have going on, I just don't see a need for any of them to actually go ahead with driving a car. Maybe for personal things, sure. But it wouldn't exactly be the most practical of ideas. Like what Jade said earlier though, for lives, most of the time they go in a van or a large car which they also transport their intruments in, I presume. Still, it's be pretty interesting to see how Tomo goes with her license. All the best wishes and luck!

Bumping the thread because of the new information : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

TOMO and MAMI have started ^^

I wonder if this was planned since a long time knowing their live schedule and the fact that HARUNA would have a play.

Let's hope everything will be fine and they get it easily  Smile

That's a good point, HaRu.  Maybe they took the time to learn how to drive since Haruna would be gone from the group for a little while.

Hopefully Tomo won't crash into any more curbs.  Please
