Medical exam at hospital for drivers license


#1

Good evening! I plan to obtain a Taiwan drivers license and have 2 questions:

I am looking for the application form, which is supposed to be on the website: Driver’s license application form (No.21) is available from the Motor Vehicles Office or download from our website

Can anyone help me locate it?

Is there a specific form for the “medical checkup certificate?” (Perhaps the details are on the application form I am looking for :neutral_face:)

Thanks!
:grinning:

If you are not converting your license then, you should just go to Motor Vehicles Office and sign up for drivers license right now. They will give you all the forms.

If you are not converting your license then you have to wait like 4 weeks before you can take your exam. This time is intended for learning the theory and practice driving at the course and can not be skipped.

I already had an European drivers license but wanted to keep it. So I just waited out the time and took the tests.

Thanks, but it seems I do not need to take a test. Just need a medical exam and would like to get the details on the specifics of the exam before I go to the Motor Vehicles Office.

Just a follow up, in case anyone is interested. Getting the license based on reciprocity was easy and done on the spot. The MVO gave me a form for the required medical exam, which was done the same day at the closest hospital at a cost of $200. Back at the MVO, there was no application form needed for the Taiwan license after all; 5 minutes and another $200 later I was good to go. :blue_car:

Also for future reference, every MVO (that I’ve been to, at least) has a nearby clinic, usually multiple within a few meters of the door, that is there specifically to give the medical exam. No need to make a trip to a hospital.

@greves Yes, that was the case. It was done at a clinic within a short walk from the MVO. The clinic was attached to a hospital or in the same building or somehow connected. Anyway they had the whole exam stations ready to go; I was in and out in less than 10 minutes.
