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.

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.
