Car license, and the biggest bike license I can get right now (up to 250cc?).
[quote=“Boredfast”]I think everyone here will also try and reset your expectation on what you read in the manual as “law” vs. “road law”.
Just be aware of this, and listen to his/her advice lol.
Also, don’t pick up bad taxi driver habits like I did (and assume its legal).
My advice to TW driving based on 4-5 months I’ve been doing it: go slow, always signal your turn/intentions, try not to get mad, and proceed when clear (this applies to driving in a car).[/quote]
I know the “road rules”. I’ve driven in Taiwan using my international permit, but it will expire next month, and it’s much cheaper to take Taiwan’s tests than sending someone with a power of attorney to get me a new international license in Spain, and then mail it to me.
However, road rules don’t prevent fines. Written laws do. And that’s what I wanted to read.[/quote]
You do understand that, this being Taiwan, the test does not have anything to do with real life? Meaning you memorize the questions and answers for the test, then promptly forget if ypu want to survive. You can also read tbe manual but be aware that laws here are grey and change constantly and make ltlle sense if at all.[/quote]
I know laws are enforced randomly in Taiwan, and that most times they don’t make sense at all. However, if they choose to enforce them, they can fine you or take away your permit as they please. As such, one should be aware of those laws, and if you decide to do something that might be punishable, be aware of it.
