Hi all,

Please accept my apology of not using chinese on this forum. I only know how to type 'simplified chinese' and not 'traditional chinese'. However, I am able to read both type of chinese.

I plan to visit Taiwan next year with my partner and my child for about 2 weeks. Due to my husband has very bad motion sickness and we are unable to take bus/couch for our trip as he MUST be a driver. We always drive or only able to take very limited train as our transport when travel.

My questions are:
- do we allow to use our own country driving licence to drive in Taiwan? We are holding Australia driving license and will be there for short period. We wish to rent a car to travel to other places,like from taichung to tainan etc.

- does Taiwan require special car seat for children? Australia has very strict policy that children up to 8 or 9 yo must use baby or children seat when travel with car.

- We would like to rent a apartment or house with kitchen facility so that we can cook some food for our child. Where can I find such information?

Look forward to hear from everybody. Thanks in advance.

I am not sure if you are aware of that the traffice in Taiwan is pretty bad and busy especially in city. Thus, if your husband is a motional driver, driving in different country might drives him crazy. Because roads here are not like Australia; wide and straight. If you're going to east coast, like Taidong & Hualien, it should be no problem for foreigners to drive on roads. However, if you plan to drive into cities, like Taipei, Taichung, Kaohsung..etc, you really need to be very careful when you drive. There will be many traffic and motorcycles on roads with you.

You will need International driver licence to rent a car in Taiwan. For age 1 to 4 years old childern & weight under 18kgs, must to use special child seat in car. It will be no problem to find an apartment with simply kitchen such B&B or hotel in Taiwan.

Hope the information helps.

Thank you for the info. We do not intend to drive much in the city if possible. We will still take the train if is available, if not, walk or maybe bicycle to travel in the cities. I am more concern with we travel to other part of areas that can't be reached by train or walk in which the only option is driving.
We drove in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia before so we are well prepare to share the road with other cylists.

Does Taiwan have exceptional for tourists to drive in Taiwan without international driving licence? For example, in Australia, we allow tourist to drive for the first 3-6 months upon arrival using their home contry driving license.

Hi Loveyee
1 你可以使用简体中文,会有更多人提供意见

2 你有澳洲驾照可以直接换成台湾驾照,当然你老公若有台湾身分证也可直接换驾照,若只是短期旅游台湾,应该要有国际驾照(建议电话问一下台湾驻澳洲的代表处)

3 幼童坐车规定

樓主若在墨爾本,可直接去RACV申請international driving permit就可以在台灣開車了,立可取件
不曉得預算如何,可以上網找找看serviced apartment是否符合你的需求
澳洲7歲以下小孩要乘坐兒童安全座椅,台灣僅需4歲以下
