Taipei, Oct. 9 (CNA) Taiwan has signed a reciprocal driver's license agreement with the U.S. state of Ohio, making it the 30th U.S. state to reach such a deal with Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday.

Under the agreement, licensed drivers from Taiwan and Ohio can apply to obtain a license in each other's territory without having to take road or written tests, said Remus Chen (陳立國), director-general of MOFA's Department of North American Affairs.

The arrangement will make life easier and more convenient for Taiwanese citizens living, working or studying in Ohio and vice versa, Chen said.

According to MOFA, the agreement was signed Tuesday by Taiwan's representative office in Chicago and the Division of Motor Vehicles under the State of Ohio's Department of Transportation.
