That infamous “JDM” Leaf

Noob Fact

* Called the SHOSHINSHA (beginner’s) mark or WAKABA (young leaf) mark.

* Japanese Law dictates that it must be displayed on your vehicle for one year after you get your license.

* PURPOSE: It warns other drivers that you are a new driver and still have little skill/experience behind the wheel.

* Often unofficially used to denote newbie status in other non-driving activities (skiing, computer programming, dating, etc).

* Drivers aged 75 and up must display the KOREISHA (older person) mark.  PURPOSE:  It warns other drivers that you are elderly and have slower reflexes and/or lost your skill behind the wheel.

* See this post for more info on the KOREISHA mark.
