Q: driving a car in Beijing with another province plate number?

May I please ask what are the implications of driving a car with another province plate number in Beijing and how can it be formalized  if you have to as I always see a lot of cars on the road with non Beijing plates?

Its no problem to drive a car with another cities plates.  You might need to pay some extra tolls. And you will need to go back to your original place for insurance and inspections. But thats about it.  Ive been doing it for years, although im at least in the same province so its not a hassle. 

 

Depending on how far the distance is between the two cities, it is probably better that it is not Beijing plates.  Licence plates there can be expensive and/or  hard to get.  Plus to change city registration is a whooooole lot of trouble. But still can be done if needed.

I drive around Southern China with license plates from Foshan, Guangdong as they are much cheaper than license plates from Guangzhou or Shenzhen, that includes major cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanning, ...

 

I never had any problems with the cops.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
