    used cars with hong kong and china vechicle registration no

    I live in shenzhen, like to buy a used car with hong kong and china vechicle registration name plates and drive to Shenzhen, crossing border. Is there any special permit needed and charges, if any one knows contact or advise a good used car seller, thanks. sridhar.

    cross border plates are not for sale or transfer.

    officially no, but due to corruption across the border, they are availble at a very high price, need a residental address and links to actual business in shenzhen (note, links can be dodgy, but with the right cash, ie believe a hk newspaper once reported sale in the region of RMB300,000 for a plate)

    If the guys across the border are corrupt, what are the used car salesmen then in Hong Kong, who "help you" to buy such license plates? "Helpful"??

    I believe the going rate nowadays is far north of RMB300k.

    Think of 700K for a lok ma chau crossing plate, Sha Tau Kok crossing plates are cheaper. Each crossborder plate is linked to a border crossing, you cant just decide to use another border crossing.

    You can rent a set of plates for 10k per month.
