Taiwan to introduce stricter driver’s license test May 1
Taipei, April 29 (CNA)
Applicants hoping to get a driver’s license in Taiwan will be required to pass a road test, in addition to a written test and an off-road test, with effect from May 1.
Currently, applicants for license to drive light vehicles are required to pass only a written test and a simulated road test at a closed off-road course.
Beginning May 1, however, they will have to take a road test as well and score at least 85 on the written exam and 70 on both the road and off-road tests. The new rules also emphasize safe driving habits, requiring applicants to check their surroundings, tires and the underside of their vehicles cars before going on the road.
