Our office was first officially organized on February 1, 1952 as a part of the Directorate General of Highways, Taiwan Provincial Highway Bureau. On July 1 1999, the bureau was put under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) over the course of the downsizing of the Taiwan Provincial Government.

In January 2002, the Legislative Yuan changed the Highway Bureau into the “Directorate General of Highways (DGH),” and our office was thus renamed as the “Taipei Motor Vehicles Supervision Office, Directorate General of Highways, MOTC.”
