Hi all, just wanted to ask the procedure of transferring overseas license to Hong Kong one. I know the TD website lists the below:
(a) have resided in the overseas country or place of issue for a period of not less than 6 months during which the licence was issued; or
(b) have held the licence for 5 years or more immediately prior to the application; or
(c) hold a passport or equivalent travel document of the country or place in which the licence was issued.
But I'd like to know what and how the procedure is. So you go to the transport department you request to change your license, do they ask you for passport? Do they check the dates of your travel and does it have to show that you've stayed those months or years before or when the license was issued? I'm fed up with trying to get a license in HK. I've failed my road test a couple of times with mistakes I didn't even know I made. Now before you criticize me, I'd like to emphasize that I've taken many lessons with an instructor and he never pointed out any mistakes. I kept improving and improving. But on the exam day, I was marked with mistakes I couldn't even believe I made.. Like "improper use of brake" "stopping too close to an object" (when I literally stopped around 5 meters away from any traffic) and all other bullshit mistakes like "improper use of clutch" how the fuck would he know! My engine never made "VROOOOM" sound once! All this I'm talking about was my motorcycle part C test. So I'm thinking of getting a license from a country I can easily get from and am a resident of. would just appreciate help explaining what the TD requests or needs when exchanging the license.. Thanks for reading this long mess.
