Q: How do I get a motorcycle license with an F visa and no residence card?

I don't think I am allowed to get a motorcycle drivers license without a residence card. Is there a way I can get a motorcycle license without a residence card, or is there a way to get a residence card with only a 6 month F visa? I have everything else needed for the motorcycle license except the residence card.
Thanks :]

You need a residency permit, sorry...

Are all residency permits for a year or can I just get a 6 month one?

Where I live you can get a car licence easily enough as long as your visa is good for six months, but they won't give you a motorcycle licence at all, not sure why. Foreigners around just ride their motorbikes. I have an Ebike, the police don't seem to worry us at all.

Motorcycle license is becoming a rarity, they are actually causing more deaths in China than anyother vehicle accidents. Cities like Beijing have almost completely stopped giving them out. As for a drivers license, well if you don't have a resident visa you can get a temporary if your homecountry drivers license is valid, but it's only good for fleet vehicles.

Hmmm this is going to be harder than I thought thanks for all the info :]
