Q: Has anyone heard about the new rules for e-bikes in Nanning

I just overheard from a local Chinese friend that by August 15, 2013 all ebikes in use in Nanning will need to be registered, and pay for and obtain license plates to circulate legally. I have no problem with that, even if done as a neat way to raise more money for a few higher ups retirement plans.  What does bothers me is that only ebikes running on 36 volts or less, with a length of less than 36 inches, and a weight of less than 36 kilos (someone likes number 36), will be allowed to receive the proposed plates.  Over 90 % of the existing bikes in Nanning do not meet that criteria, including mine. 

Does anyone has any information from the horse's mouth, not just street rumors and fiction?. I also was told that as you go to get registered, if bike does not meet the requirements, will be confiscated on the spot. And I can not find any information anywhere...... Will appreciate good feedback, and thanks

only ebikes running on 36 volts or less, with a length of less than 36 inches, and a weight of less than 36 kilos (someone likes number 36), will be allowed to receive the proposed plates........I am searching... I think the bikes mentioned above are exempt from registration..  the bigger/faster bikes are the ones that are to be registered....Zhanjiang, Zhongshan and a 3rd city ( I forget) maybe Nanning.. are test site cities for these new regs....... July 1st I had to have a license plate.... and MAYBE Sept. 1st,  I will need a drivers license.

I will continue my search... I did have a website that had some info... patience patience patience ..... 

BHGAL:

I have counted about 5 bikes with licenses so far.(July 1 was our date).. mine and my "uncles" and maybe 3 others..............  300,000 to go ....  and it took my wife a whole day after arriving at the lineup at 6 am ... to get the thing registered and get the plate...

she just came home the first day... left home earlier the next day.

that would be a bummer, 36 volt bike aren't very good, 48v 20a are good, I was thinking of getting a 72v next time.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
