Q: Driving licence: Is there a Chinese Highway Code book in English ?

I have had 2 attempts at the computerised driving test,77/100 both times... I have learnt the road signs but I can not answer the other questions relating to law etc.,so it seems that I will never be able to pass the test as the only book I have is in Chinese... any advice ?!?

Yes, it's simple to remember and translates as: FOOT TO FLOOR HAND ON HORN PROCEED FORWARD ATTEMPTING TO AVOID ANY OBJECT IN FRONT OF YOU.

I don't know if it has been updated but you could try "China Drive" if you have an iOS (Apple) device.

 

I got 72 on my first test, then 96 on my second go. I didn't use the app for the first try.

 

It gives you all the questions that are in the real test and the multiple choice answer order is the same e.g. A = A, B = B etc.

 

I managed to do the test in less than 15 minutes as well. Well worth the 6rmb!

When I looked, the theory book is only in Chinese. The rules are pretty much the same as they are everywhere, just forget what you actually see on the streets. As hiddenjelly says, do some sample tests and then prepare yourself for some crappy English translations when you actually go and do the test.

I have to be honest with you, I don't know if there is a translated version of the book.  Fortunately, when I got my Chinese driver's license, I (along with a friend) was able to convince the authorities to allow me to have a translator when taking my written test.  Naturally, my friend knew the test very well and literally told me the answers!  We had an official overlooking us, but that official could not speak English.  Was there a little acting involved on my part to appear as though I was pondering each answer?  Yes!  Was this cheating?  Yes!  But I got a 97/100 score!

i passed the test in Chengu in 2009. The guys who used the book were failing. Get the data file from the traffic office and practice on your PC. That is how they test you , on a computer

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
