The series started on October 5, 2014, joining Ressha Sentai ToQger in the Super Hero Time line-up after the finale of Kamen Rider Gaim. After ToQger concluded on February 15, 2015, the series was joined by Shuriken Sentai Ninninger in the Super Hero Time line-up. After the finale of Kamen Rider Drive, Kamen Rider Ghost will join Ninninger in the Super Hero Time line-up. Its series tagline is "Start Your Engine!"


Shinnosuke Tomari is a former elite police officer in the Metropolitan Police who after an event that traumatized one of his colleagues has been "demoted" into the Special Investigations Division, a group that looks into the more peculiar happenings in the city, particularly the "Heavy Acceleration" events that leave people unable to move that the public have termed the "Slowdown." When he is chosen by the Drive Driver and Tridoron, Shinnosuke transforms into Kamen Rider Drive and is tasked with battling the Roidmudes who wish to take over the world by eliminating humanity.

Insert themesEdit


  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have an automobile motif, and the second series to have an element of detective story since Kamen Rider W. It is also the fifth Kamen Rider season to involve the police into matters, though with a heavier influence akin to Kamen Rider Kuuga and Kamen Rider Agito than Kamen Rider W and Kamen Rider Wizard.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider series since Kamen Rider Decade without a cameo appearance from any of its characters during either the previous Rider's summer movie or final episode.
  • The producer of the show calls it a tribute to the 1982 American television series, Template:W, quoting it as "Kamen Rider meets Knight Rider".
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have the opening theme be sung by a singer who has portrayed a Kamen Rider in the past. In this case, Mitsuru Matsuoka, who played Katsumi Daido (Kamen Rider Eternal), and later, Kamen Rider 4.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season with a "monster of the fortnight" format to have three-part episode plots (9-11, 31-33) that is not close to the final episode.
