Drivers from Taiwan get reprieve from driver's license test

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, OR (AP) -

Oregonians living in Taiwan will be able to get a driver's license without taking a driving test.

Likewise, drivers from Taiwan won't need to take the road test to obtain an Oregon license.

Representatives of both governments signed an agreement in Salem on Monday.

Oregon's Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division will begin accepting simplified applications from Taiwanese drivers on Friday. Aside from the road test, all other fees and eligibility requirements are the same in both countries.

Oregon has similar driver's license agreements with South Korea and Germany.
