A study looks to help older motorists who want or need to stop driving.
Drivers from Taiwan can now obtain a Prince Edward Island driver’s licence without taking a written test or road exam.
“Being able to drive is a critical part of adjusting to life in a new location,” said Transportation Minister Robert Vessey.
“Removing some of the barriers to driving in Prince Edward Island should help more of our international residents settle in to their adopted home.”
Taiwanese drivers still must take a vision test, pay the appropriate fees and provide sufficient documentation.
The licence they receive is a Class 5, which is good for operating passenger vehicles.
Full-time university or college students may still use their foreign driver’s licence but must also have an International Driver’s Permit if their home country’s licence is not in English or French.
Taiwan is one of 10 foreign nations whose driver’s licences are recognized by Prince Edward Island. The others are the United States, Austria, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, South Korea, Japan, and Switzerland.
Drivers from elsewhere in Canada can also obtain a provincial driver’s license without a written or road test.
