    She will have to take a drivers test in VA. Most likely written and actual driving. Is she Japanese? Or just only got her first license in Japan?

    A couple links:

    Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles

    Specifically for military and their families:

    Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles

    "If you are an active duty member of the Armed Forces stationed in Virginia, you, your spouse and dependent children may drive with a valid driver's license issued by your home state or country. You are not required to obtain a Virginia driver's license; however, if you choose to apply, you will need documents to prove:

    * Identity (two documents)
    * Virginia residency
    * Legal presence
    * Social security number, if you have been issued one

    Use the interactive document guide to determine which documents you will need to bring to DMV when you apply, or refer to "Acceptable Documents for Obtaining a Driver's License or Photo ID Card" (DMV 141). "

    If she does decide to get a VA driver's license, OP, make sure to make an appointment. Their walks in usually get the long wait.
