    There is an agent in South Korea who arranges to do a English language international motorcycle license there.
    With that you can convert into a Chinese bike license.
    At least in BJ the bike license theory and formalities are in Chinese only.
    I know at least one guy with fluent Chinese skills who still preferred to go the Korean way.

    For agent contact in Wechat send me PM

    Hi everyone. Interesting thread. Is it hard to get license in general?

    International Driving Licenses are of no use in China. You need a foreign license for motorcycles and you need to do the written test, which I believe they now have in English. If you do not have a foreign motorcycle license you will have to sit the whole test, this will be in Chinese. You also need to check up on the status of your visa as I believe they will not issue a license for tourist visas..

    Hello everyone:

    This is my first message in the forum! I've been checking on Mychinamoto for a while, since i wanted to start riding, but didn't have a chinese license, or even a valid motorcycle license back home. I've just started doing it from scratch and i believe sharing my experience could be of some help for someone in my same situation.

    First, I want to say thay i live in Songjiang, (Shanghai) so likewise most people here, a 户A or 户 C plate is unaffordable for me, therefore I intend to go with the second best option, being fully legal but carry an out-of-town plate.

    My main concern was wether an english test was available or not, so I asked at a driving school, where they firstly told me that they didn't know (pretty funny, because this is their business).
    After pushing them a bit, they made a phone call and told me that an english version was indeed available, i felt kind of skeptical about it, since the info I got from the internet said opposite, including this forum.
    Anyway, I decided to give it a try and signed up for the exam.

    I got my exam date appointed for subjects 1 and 4, the written part. Once at the examination place, the officer who was about to assignate me a computer in the exam room asked if I wanted to do it in english or even in my mother tongue, and I said english was fine, relieved because it finally seemed like actually there was an english version.

    Right after that, he probably got and error in the computer and he said: well, there is no english, but your wife can come in and translate it for you.

    So we did, and I managed to pass both tests... I don't know if this was an exception... because even the officer there thought there was an english version in the beginning, but there wasn't. Probably not many foreigners have tried before at that location...but well, that's how it turned out to be. Hope this helps if anyone is doubting about giving it a go, like I was... Now wish me luck for the practical part :-D

    Cheers!

    So.. All's well that ends well.
    Frankly it's amazing they do actually have foreign language test for expats over here. Do other countries do this? ( I remember Egypt Did, but then the test was "can you drive a car?").. Long time ago.
