Hi, I've heard that in some special circumstances the head of the HK transport department will exercise discretion and issue a drivers licence even if you don't strictly fit the criteria.
Has anyone heard of someone successfully applying for discretion and getting a licence outside of the usual channels?
The situation is that the person's current drivers licence is from a country that's not listed as 'approved' by HK, and they can't find sufficient proof of their previous licence (which is from a country which IS recognised, but was issued so long ago that records have been lost!)
Any advice appreciated! Thanks
