I am riding my motor bike in Silk Road Now.
I bought second hand bike at 2000 chinese yen in Inner Mongolia ,China.
When I bought it, I asked chinese police officer “No problem?” ,showing my international driving license.
They answered me “Yes, No problem ”
I am Asian, and I have the same face as chinese, black hair and eyes,I believe it helps a lot.
In China, in every town, especially at morning and evening, at every cross road,there stands policemen and watch every vehicles.
For western person, it might be a little bit problem.
I have met hundreds of policemen, but they did not give me any attention, because I look like chinese.
But, if they see western person whose face is quite different from chinese ride motor bike ,I believe, they stop him, and ask him “ show me your license”
I was asked to show my license twice thus far , I showed my linternational driving license, and they said me “ OK, have a good and safe drive”
May be I was just ‘Lucky’.
In China,International driving license is ‘officialy’ NO but ‘actually’ OK.
I think so.
If you have any question, give me E mail.
