Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

Here you can read the guide on the public service website of Zhejiang province for reference. (But they forgot to delete the requirement for health check and "traffic law education"😅) There's very few information about the situation in Xinjiang, but the application procedure should be the same, unle...

Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

Here is a specimen of the Temporary Driving License ("Provisional Driving Permits", “临时机动车驾驶许可”). Remember, the photo size required is not 1inch × 1inch. It seems that they require the "photo for driving license" for the application use, which the photo size is 32mm × 22mm, with the head width 14-16...

Re: Security situation in Xinjiang - leave your thoughts

However, we (surprisingly?) didn't encounter many of the hassles I've read about - noone ever searched our phones nor at the airport (both ways), nor at various police checkpoints in the city and on the highways to Turpan, we were using VPN and accessing anything we wanted on the internet without a...

Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

Hi there, Just to get this right.... All of the posts above are referring to the temp. License. What about driving a foreign licensed vehicle? It'd be great to have a simplified process for both, maybe even the ability to drive a defined route (e.g. Murghab - Tashkurgan - Pakistan) without a 'guide...

Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

1.I think you don't HAVE TO apply for the provisional driving permit through an agency like the Ehi car Services you mentioned if your application materials are complete. 2.It seems that only Shanghai required the translation from designated translation agencies.
