Registration Process & Required Documents For Vehicles Shipped To Taiwan

Registering an imported vehicle in Taiwan does involve a process with a few steps to it, but it’s not much different from it would be in any other country. Almost every country in the world has the same type of requirements for registering an imported car or truck. You’ll need to present a set of documents, have your vehicle inspected, and then pass an emissions test.

Taiwan Vehicle Registration Process

Required Vehicle Registration Documents

Any time an imported vehicle is registered in Taiwan, the following documents will be required:

  • Passport
  • Driver’s license
  • Bill of sale
  • Title & registration
  • Visa & work certificate
  • Bill of lading

There may be additional documents beyond these that are also needed, depending on the circumstances of your import, as well as the potential for changes in the process. Check with your shipping service, or the local consulate for more information on current restrictions and requirements.

What is a bill of lading and why do you need it?

The bill of lading is a document used in shipping that describes what type of cargo is being moved, from where to where, for whom, and other details. In terms of shipping a vehicle, it includes things like the make, model, year, VIN, the information of the owner and that of the shipper. Essentially, it verifies that the vehicle you’re presenting for registration is the same one you’ve had shipped.

Taiwan Vehicle Inspection & Additional Registration Resources

Vehicle Inspection Test

The vehicle inspection test in Taiwan is not as thorough as it is in some other countries, but it is still required to register an imported car. As with most preregistration inspections, things like your brakes, lights, and steering will be tested for safety. You’ll also have to get an emissions test to certify that the vehicle meets the environmental standards for Taiwan.

If the inspection is not passed, you will have one month to make the necessary repairs and attempt the inspection again. Vehicle examinations are carried out by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (see link under the resource section).

Taipei Motor Vehicles Office - The motor vehicle office for the capital city of Taiwan has many helpful links and resources for importing, registering, and driving a vehicle. This link is to the English version of the website.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
