Driving in Beijing

How to Apply for a Driving License in Beijing

  • Heavy Beijing Traffic
  • Beijing Traffic Jam

If you are brave enough to drive in the Capital of China, remember that you need to apply for a Beijing Driving License. This is relatively easy and can be done without much help, aside from translation of documents, and a ride to the test center. 

Documents needed are originals and copies:

  • Passport with residence permit (original & copy of photo page and visa page)
  • Driver License from home country (original within the valid period)
  • Home country Driver License translated into Chinese (a form is available at the testing center)
  • 5 pieces of color photos, must be white background, size 1 inch (32mm×22mm)
  • ‘Temporary Residence Registration Form’ issued by the local police
  • Driver’s Health Check Report
  • Application Form

The 1st step:

You need go to any hospital that can conduct the health check service and get the passed report. The government charge for the check up is RMB10. At the time of writing this article, Terminal 3 at the airport provides this service in their First Aid desk

The 2nd step:

Make an appointment with Vehicle Administrative Office for the ’Beijing Traffic Rule Test’

       Address: No. 18 South Fourth Ring Road, East Side 南4环东路18号

       Entity: Beijing Vehicle Management Department - Foreigners Diversion 北京市车辆管理所外事科 (it is inside  a small door on the left side of the main room. Look for the toilets and go past them) 

Telephone: +86 10 6839 7905

Opening Hours: 8:30~11:00 and 13:30~17:00 Monday to Friday

 Note:  Location of the test will be taken in the Vehicle Administrative Office, the test is only organized every Tuesday and Wednesday, and you need to make an appointment in advance before taking the test. The test reference book can be purchased at Vehicle Administrative Office where you make the appointment. The government charge for the test is RMB 70.

After making an appointment around 2 weeks, you need to take the test. And you need to bring your original passport together with the test notice from Vehicle Administrative Office.

The 3rd step:

Go back to the Vehicle Administrative Office on the date that you booked and Take the test at a computer. It will be automatically graded. You can take the test up to 2 times in one day. Minimum passing score is 90%. 

The 4th step:

Once you pass the test, the official will provide you with a paper confirming a passing score. Then go immediately downstairs to the main hall and fill out a courier form with your address & telephone number, then pay the courier fee. They will send the Chinese driver license to you directly once it’s printed, usually in a week time. Alternatively you can pick up the driver license by yourself after one week with the passed certificate.

Congratulations: Your Chinese Driver License is valid for six years, but must be re-registered periodically throughout that time, if you use it for more than six years in China.
