Provisions for driving in China. - facts.

I have a gripe which need fixing.

I live and I am resident in China, I can drive my own Chinese registered car, almost anywhere in China, with my full legal Chinese driving license, with no guide or agents telling me otherwise.

But if I want to drive my foreign registered car, it is not so strait forward, if you believe the agents, extortionists or thieves as I would like to call them.

So, firstly I don't need any guide when I drive my Chinese registered car any where in China, why do I need a guide when I drive a foreign registered car in China?.

Am I any more likely to drive to prohibited areas with a foreign registered car, as I am with a Chinese registered car?
I think the reverse would be true.

From the Government website.
I have not corrected all the grammar !!

It's funny how you can run seemingly the same search and come up with different results each time. I hadn't seen this before, despite having, I thought, trawled the Hubb and the 'net for months looking for info on driving in China!

Unfortunately, without correcting the grammar, the translation is very difficult to understand, but one thing is conspicuous by it's absence ... the mention of 'guides'! This would appear to tally with what we have been told by our own Chinese contacts. That they aren't, officially, obligatory, won't help anyone, however, if the customs officers at the border operate their own rules and, anyway, as I've mentioned on another thread, it probably isn't particularly safe to rely on GPS alone for navigation. I don't think we are particularly anti hiring a guide, it's just the $$$$ that the travel agents charge that grates.
