I know many would advise me to sit for the local test and get a local licence. I know it’s the best option, but the problem is I’m afraid of the color blindness test. I possess a DL from my native country for almost 20 years, and in the past there was no stringent color-blindness test, as long as you’re able to identify the basic colours; it’s not as if when you’re diagnosed color blind, everything is black and white.
So I’m contemplating getting a IDL from my native country, which will last for a year in Taiwan, after which I will repeat the process year after year.
Is that workable ? Are insurance coverage readily available for IDL holders both as driver and owner?
