Motor Vehicle office Taichung

  1. Can somebody please tell me the DMV office location in Taichung? I want to register a car but am unsure if the office is somehwere close to Beitun Road or up past Donghai Univeristy.

  2. Any tips for passing the car licence test? Do I need a licence to register a car in Taiwan?

Cheers for any help :wink:

I’m afraid I can’t give you a 100% answer… 'cos I 'm not altogether sure…

As far as I understand it, the spot for doing the scooter licences is the one near BeiTun road, for cars you need to go to the DMV proper which is up past Dong Hai university, just turn left at the red lights at the very top of the hill keep going down that small road for about 3km and the DMV is fairly obvious on your left…

That is where I did my car licence test… The hardest part about the “written test” is that they make the big noses use a computer with the multiple choice questions in English, but the questions are played through a set of headphones only… just for laughs they apparently got a different person to record each question, all at different volumes and with differing degrees of English ability… some of the questions are just unintelligable…

You can borrow a review book from them there which will enable you to practice the potential questions they’ll give you… if you check this out for an hour or so and brush up on your Chinglish, you’ll be fine…

The yard test is easy… just don’t hit the lines more than once… stop at the flashy lights and train crossing and you’re done… toughest part is probably the driving through the tight circle bit… you can choose if you want to use an auto or manual car to do the test… :loco: oh, and you’ll need to do a simple medical / eye check before hand…

if cars are the same as bikes, and I’m sure they are… you do not need to produce a licence to register a vehicle, just the paperwork and the cash…

Excellent post plasmatron, but don’t worry, this is Taiwan, so do what the fuck you like. Do you really think anyone will give a shit? This is Taichung, you can get away with murder!

Thanks for the info Plasmatron :wink:

The place is near - Chunder Rd & Ching Wha Bay Road. There’s a McDonalds on this intersection - what a suprise. Suggest to get there and then flag a taxi & follow him.

If your on Wen-Shin Raod & Da-ya Road then your near it too.

Good luck.

[quote=“joesax”]Go east along Chinhua (Jinhua) North Rd. Cross Chungde (Chengde) Rd. Later there’s a traditional market on your right. The intersection with Beitvn Rd. is just after this. Turn right onto Beitvn. Very shortly, you’ll see the DMV on your right. There’s a car park at the front, then some buildings. There’s a sign at the front, but not in English. It all looks quite official.

If you go too far, you’ll get to a pedestrian overpass.[/quote]But as Plasmatron said, you can’t do your car driving test there. In that thread there are also more directions to the place where you can do your car driving test, up on Dadushan.

Got the place wrong - that place is for bikes & scooters.

Joesax I’ll spell it how I feel - understand

cheers
