Taiwan, South Carolina sign MOU on driver's license reciprocity

Taipei, March 27 (CNA) Taiwan and the U.S. state of South Carolina have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on driver's license reciprocity that allows license-holders from each side to obtain a local license without having to take local tests, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Friday. The MOU was signed earlier Friday and took immediate effect, the ministry said in a statement. Under the agreement, residents in South Carolina with a Taiwanese driver's license are allowed to waive written and driving tests to receive a South Carolina driver's license, while South Carolina drivers can obtain a license issued by Taiwan. South Carolina is the 10th U.S. state to sign an agreement on driver's license reciprocity with Taiwan, following Mississippi, Maryland, Idaho, Florida, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Delaware and Washington, according to the ministry.
