U.S. Marine Forces Korea Staff and families traveling to Korea.

The online driver's training and test are mandatory. This change allows sponsors to assist authorized troops and families and set them up for success before they arrive. You may not go straight to the test and skip training. You must take the training first before you will be allowed to take the test. A passing score on the test is required to receive a POV license and/or a military/GOV license.

Training and testing for the USFK Driver's License (USFK 134EK) is conducted at the Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) website. The training and testing are open to all Service Members, DoD Civilians, and their respective dependents. Personnel with a CAC should log into JKO with their CAC and register for training. Personnel without a CAC must first create a JKO account using a user id and password and then take the training and the test. Do not take the training and test using your sponsor's CAC. To receive credit for the training and the test, you must log onto JKO with your own account credentials.

The training is a pre-requisite to the test and individuals may not take the test without first completing all the training modules.

Note: Test scores are good for 60 days. Licenses will not be issued to personnel that have taken the test more than 60 days prior to applying for a license.

USFK Driver Licenses are issued at the service installations in Korea. Once you have completed the driver training and pass the test on JKO, go to your installation driver licensing facility and present your DoD identification card (CAC or dependent ID) and a valid driver's license.

Please allow 48 hours following your taking of the test to allow for system processing. The test facility personnel will look up your test score online to validate that you meet licensing requirements. Following test score verification, a USFK Driver's License (USFK 134EK) will be issued. Training certificates will not be accepted as a proof of passing the online JKO training. Note: Procedures and service specific requirements may vary slightly. Check with your installation licensing office for specific details.

Personal transportation devices (PTDs) are defined as those vehicles designed to transport personnel but not registered as a motor vehicle, motorcycle or motor scooter that propels the device at a maximum speed of no more than 60 KPH on level ground.

Korea requires operators of PTDs to be licensed to operate a PTD on or off installation. Korean traffic laws apply to persons operating or riding PTDs while on a public roadway, bicycle lane, bicycle path, or any right-of-way under Korean or USFK jurisdiction. Operators are required to comply with every rule and regulation on the road, understand the characteristics of the PTD correctly, and ride it cautiously to ensure it is a safe means of transport. Above all, operators should be prepared to deal with the risks posed by cars and pedestrians.


Effective July 12, 2022

Korea has revised a road traffic law to help strengthen pedestrian protection obligations. The new revision states that drivers need to stop when turning right at intersections, especially when pedestrians are present on the crosswalk.

Additionally, drivers must make a full stop, regardless of pedestrians present, in Child Protection Areas.


Please see below for additional clarification.


Red Light: Come to a full stop before slowly turning right.


Green Light: Slow down prior to turning right.


Come to a full stop in front of the crosswalk. When pedestrians finish crossing and no more pedestrians are present, turn slowly right.


Always stop regardless of pedestrians, if a traffic signal is not installed in Child Protection Zones.
