as far as im aware you will need a licence.
funny thing though   the quad bikes are classed as toys so you dont need a licence.
my advice is take the bus as it is a little bit safer than what you prepose.
there are many Questions on Licenceing here.
start by going through them and if you are still head strong in joining the traffic versition of Russian roillett check your insurance policy under suicide.
realy it's not worth it in the big cities.
hope this helped or talked you out of it.
best regardscheeky

 I know of one guy that owned a motorcycle. He didn't have a license and he rode it every morning to the training center. As far as getting a license you could get one it's not that hard but most of the time you won't really need one. Cops usually don't pull you over and check if you have any license. It might be safer to get one though, but as far as buying a motorcycle you don't have to prove to anybody that you have a license all you need is the necessary means to pay for it. cool

Regulations differ for different type motorcycles.  So we are on the same basis, I call ebikes those with a battery and an electric motor, and gas bikes those that use a gasoline driven motor.

Ebikes comes in 24 volts, 45 volts and 64 volts, but some municipal or provincial governments do prohibit the 64 volts ones and some the 64 and 45 volts one, since they run faster.  For these ebikes, it is legal to drive them without the need of a Chinese driver's license.

Gas bikes are limited in size to the private sector, biggest legal engine is 250 cc.  ALL GAS BIKES DO REQUIRE you to have a driver's license, if caught without one your bike will be confiscated, and may have to show up in Court and pay a fine at least.

I do know many that drive gas bikes without a license plate, or a driver's license.  But that is illigal, and if caught you may not like the consecuences.  And do not fall for the remark that Police will not stop a foreigner, they will and I have been stopped several times, but I am legal so no consecuences.  I have also seen hundreds if not thousands of confiscated bikes being destroyed by Police in TV and newspapers.

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
