Md., S. Korea reach driver accord

By Michael D. Bolden

If you're a Marylander with a non-commercial driver's license living in the Republic of Korea you can now exchange your license for a Korean one without taking a test. The same is true for Korean license holders living in Maryland, the state Motor Vehicle Administration says.

State officials announced the agreement Tuesday. All other requirements, including completion of a three-hour drug and alcohol course, residency and identity, still apply, the MVA said. Transportation officials said the request for the reciprocity agreement was relayed through the Governor's Office and Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs.

"This agreement is another symbol of our strong relationship with the Republic of Korea," said Transportation Secretary Beverley Swaim-Staley.
