PostSubject: Get a driver license in Changshu   Wed Jul 14, 2010 4:50 pm

Dear members,

You alredy have a foreign driver license and it's time for you to get a chinese one.

To do so, you need to go to the police station in charge with all the cars.

You can get a Chinese driver license for foreigners with any visa. You can verify its validity at driving and vehicle license centre.If you want to drive car in China , Please contact us.

Here is a list of documents we need to help a foreigner get his or her Chinese legal driving license :

1.a copy of the main passport page

2.a copy of the valid visa ( any visa type is ok ).

3.a copy of the both sides of the overseas driving license (any driving license is ok )

4.a copy of the last entry stamp

5.8 one-inch color pictures with white background

6.Your chinese name and your height in centimeters

You need to pay around 400 RMB to get a written examination which contains around 100 questions.

The police officer is going to give you a form which contains the regular questions of the exam.

If you speak chinese like a spanish cow you have to come with a chinese translator who can easily be a chinese friend.

[Edit by mattcoq] Romain AUGER is taking the Driving License test in Chanshu soon and will soon give us all the details & feedback ...

I actually didn't get the time to pass the driving licence.

Information to add to Faba list is that you need to get an official translation of your foreign driving licence.
It cost 200Rmb and there is only one place in Changshu. But i did a long time ago with a chinese friend so I don't have the exact address. it's on Hayu avenue, from Sheraton to the direction of the walking street, it's almost in front of the hospital on the other side of the Avenue.

As far as I know there is the exam every thursday.

PostSubject: Chinese way....   Thu Oct 07, 2010 2:54 pm

If, like me, you have not the time,
and the most important, when you see how they drive No
when you know how you drive,
then you think : waaoh !!! Why I have to pass the chinese driving test ????

So, with help of some colleagues, and good organization of my assistant,
I "bought" the driving license.
Someone go to drive for me,
someone go to the hospital for me,
and for the examination of the traffic road, I do the first time (70/100...),
then I begin the second time, and after 10min, a man came to replace me (100/100...),
Crazy day !!!

But very efficient, in one day I had the driving licence.
Total cost around 3500rmb.

If you need the contact, ask me.

Arnaud.

I do agree, like Arnaud said, ... If there are risks to be taken, let's be responsible for our own acts ...

Another point also is how good are the transportation networks around and also the schedules ... Not very convenient sometimes ...

Surely, the most important point, and i'll just quote Arnaud : "Freedom" ... I have been driving 10 years in China, and for sure, if I didn't have my driving license, i wouldn't have visited some places, that even chinese people don't go to visit ... And that makes a big, very big difference ... Going where, when and how I want ...

Well, how to explain .... That is one of the advantages (or sidebacks) of studying Law for 4 years ...

You are trained to have an answer for everything lol!

As usual, it is not forbidden to own one ... Not forbidden to drive one ...

It is just forbidden to get arrested .... Razz

All the infos on this thread are pretty much still up to date ...

Now the biggest change since some time, is the fact that you do not need to go down to Suzhou for the tests ... The driving license is still managed by Suzhou, but all the paper work and the test are done in Changshu ...

For the "price" having your test taken, it is pretty much the same if you go through an "agent" ... Afterwards, if you have a good chinese friend and who can negotiate for you at the test station, you might have chances to get a much lower price ...
