Advisory: DMV to Sign License Agreement with Taiwan Wednesday

CARSON CITY – Department of Motor Vehicles Director Terri Albertson and Joseph Ma, Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in San Francisco, will sign a driver’s license reciprocity agreement in a ceremony at the State Capitol.

This will be Nevada’s first license reciprocity agreement with a foreign jurisdiction. Also speaking at the ceremony will be Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske and State Senator Scott Hammond, who spearheaded the enabling legislation for the agreement in the 2015 Legislature.  

The signing ceremony also recognizes the 30th anniversary of the Sister City relationship between Nevada and Taiwan.
