Licence but no ARC = no scooter?

I’m in Taipei for another 3 or 4 months, I’m here on a working holiday visa and am using my time here to study Chinese. I really want to get scooter to allow me to explore Taipei’s nooks and crannies while I’m here.

How can I get scooter in Taipei? I have an international driving license but no ARC. I’ve heard it’s possible, maybe someone can help point me in the right direction? :pray:


Easiest way I know of is to have a local friend register it in their name.

I think you can rent them at Jeremy’s bike Farm. I hear the monthly rates are reasonable and that’s what I would do. No need to buy one for only a few months.

CraigTPE - I don’t have a local friend who is willing to do this for me.

canucktyuktuk - Thanks, this sounds like what I’m looking for, how can I get into contact with Jeremy?

Edit: After looking at the website, I might have been wrong about the end of Jeremy’s rentals. Sorry.

The last Jeremy told me Bikefarm was finished.

Saw him a week and a half ago. He said he’s still doing rentals. From the link above to the revamped site it looks as though he’s doing it differently.
