If you’re new to the island you’ve maybe seen the yellow plate cars running around the island and wondered what’s the difference? Here’s the rundown:

-Cheaper road tax (only $30 a year)
-Cheaper JCI (about $350 includes safety inspection) 
-Cheaper tolls (big differences for couple years period)
-Great resale value (which is very important when you PCS)

So if you don’t need a big gas guzzler check out a yellow plate. One of our recommended car shops has a great selection. Check out Carman here: http://www.okinawacarman.com/
