Foreign motorists from Taiwan (Republic of China) who apply for a Vermont Class D Driver's License may be eligible to have the knowledge and skills tests waived. The Vermont DMV has a reciprocal agreement for driver licensing with Taiwan.
To be eligible under the reciprocal agreement, all persons must meet the following requirements:
- Must be at least 18 years of age
- The foreign license must not be expired
Additionally, the following are required.
To exchange your Taiwan driver's license for a Vermont Driver's License, you must complete the following:
Appear at a Vermont DMV office and bring the following documentation:
- Proof of Name and Date of Birth
- Proof of Legal Presence in the United States
- Proof of Identity
- Proof of Vermont Residency
- Your Social Security Number (if you possess one or are eligible for one)
- Your Driver's License from Taiwan
- A notarized translation of the driver's license issued by Taiwan’s Directorate General of Highways.
- Pass a basic vision exam
- Complete the Vermont license application
- Pay the required driver's license fee
Upon completing the application process, you will receive a Temporary Driving Receipt, which will serve as your valid Vermont Driver's License until your card arrives in the mail in approximately ten days.
