My wife is Taiwanese. We lived in Taiwan before and I had an ARC for 6 seven years. My ARC is expired and didnt renew since we live in another country. We are planning to go back to Taiwan soon. I already got my resident visa which has special permit during Covid-19.
I got car and motorcycle licenses when I was in Taiwan. Expiry date of motorcyle license is 15.05.2018 and for the car is 15.05.2021. Is it possible for me to renew the licences without exams when I get my new ARC? Thanks.
