Taipei, May 12 (CNA) Starting July 1, elderly drivers and motorcycle riders in Taiwan will be required to renew their licenses every three years, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said Friday.

The new regulations will apply to drivers who reach 75 years on or after July 1, the ministry said.

In the case of those already past 75, they will be required to renew their drivers' licenses every three years only if they have a record of causing traffic accidents, violating traffic regulations or having their licenses revoked, the ministry said.

On the renewal date, a three-year license will be issued once the applicant presents a doctor's report showing good mental health and cognitive ability, the ministry said.

The new regulations are being introduced to address the high accident rate among drivers and riders between 75 and 80 years of age, according to the MOTC.

An estimated 70,000 people will fall under the new rules in the first year of implementation, the ministry said.
