Although it looks like a common question, I couldn't find a recent thread about my case. So, here I send my post.
We moved to HK a couple of months ago. We don't have a car yet, but we have plans to buy one. So, first I wanted to convert my driving license to HK license.
Transport Department - Driving in Hong Kong for Overseas Driving Licence Holders
My situation fits 3.2 (Apply for a Temporary Driving Licence) on this page, as my country is not on the list of countries whose citizens can convert their driving licenses directly.
I have my HK ID, proof of address, a driving license which is older than 5 years etc. So, it seems I should be eligible for this one.
However, one of the Criteria on 3.2.1 says: "Apply for a driving test within 3 months after the date of arrival in Hong Kong"
I didn't understand this part. What exactly is the definition of "the date of arrival in Hong Kong"? I hope it doesn't mean the date we first entered to HK using our residence permit, as it was more than 3 months ago. Do you guys know what it means?
Is there anyone who followed this process 3.2 recently? What are the next steps?
