Japanese Compulsory Automobile Insurance (JCI)
JCI (insurance) is required by Japanese Law. This insurance covers bodily injury or death of the other party, for which you are legally liable. Remember, Japanese Law is very strict. You must buy JCI not only to drive but, also to have your automobile registered or inspected. At PIT STOP we provide this insurance with each initial purchase of a vehicle. We also can assist you with renewal of your JCI policy.
