About driving and driverís license

Driving license
You can not drive with an International Driver's Permit (IDP) in mainland China as well as in Jiangsu. The country has not signed the convention that created IDPs. You have to drive in Jiangsu with a Chinese license. This is a tough situation you would face.

From this year of 2007, however, China is going to change its present driving permit system to ease the process for international travelers and expatriates. Drivers licensed by certain countries may drive vehicles after a quick hour-long traffic law briefing. Your license, however, will be time-limited. Contact your local friend or institution to get information.

Driving regulations
The province of Jiangsu enforces regulations legislated by the central state government plus its by-law system. The traffic in the province, as well as in mainland China, drives on the right-hand side of the road and it is different with two exceptions that Hong Kong and Macau, otherwise, drive on the left. Beware well of the transitions!

The official driving code in the province is carried out by the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People's Republic of China. It applies for all vehicles in China, except military vehicles. A vehicle with a military license plate would not follow any rule. It may not stop at a red light, or it might go from the wrong direction. Beware well of this.
