Anyone renewed a drivving license recently? I believe I need my passport (amongst other papers) but this is currently with the PSB processing a new visa. Worryingly though, I've also been told that if you don't renew quickly enough you have to resit the driving test. Anybody know if that's true and, if so, the maximum time for straightforward renewal? Thanks.
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.
In 2010 I missed my renewal by a month or so and it wasn't a big problem. I think it just took longer to get it back after applying.
Don't need a medical test anymore.
Just to give feedback, as @Bucko says, there was no medical. Also, they had no problem with my renewal being overdue. Thanks to all for the advice.
