Having got my International license in Germany specifically for my stay in Taiwan, I discovered later it was no longer valid as I no longer had an address in Germany. I applied for it originally so that I could hire cars in Taiwan as I understood that it would have a Chinese translation. However upon receiving it the only translations were into a few European languages and Russian. You call that an International license!

A couple of years ago I renewed a scooter license that had expired about a year before that. I doubt there's any difference with car licenses. I don't remember the exact procedure now; but it wasn't a lot of trouble. (Certainly less hassle than going through the testing procedure!)
