Forums > Living in Kunming > Driving License renewal

You need your current licence, passport, household registration from the police, photos and medical test.

You can get photos near the licence place. Then get your medical test done at the licence center, costs 10rmb last November.

You need to ask at the center about if you miss your deadline for renewing.

Making a report to the hotline for safety issues etc is important and should be commended. I called once about trees that needed trimming, not only did they do the work quickly but they also called to make sure I was satisfied that the work had been done and in a good way.

For urgent things like broken traffic lights etc call 110

It's better to report things so they can be fixed, most people don't do that so the city government doesn't get the info that those things need to be done.

@Xiefei, I remember about in the late 1990's that Beijing had regulated that public toilets be free and that if you needed to use a toilet that you bars and restaurants had to let you use their toilets even if you were not a customer.

Places like Yunnan implement laws differently. For eg: Tobacco advertising is illegal in China, but in Yunnan you wouldn't know that.



when we renovated we took our workmen to B&Q to select materials from their excellent range if samples. Then with that list in hand we went to the construction market near Mingbo bridge and got the same materials at either half or one third of the B&Q price.

It's a good place for window shopping.
