    Question, do you need to always carry your driving ID when driving in Hong Kong

    Haven't driven for a while. I know in the UK you need to. Not sure about HK?

    Thanks!

    Just keep the license in your car. It serves no other purpose.

    Have a GeoExpat related problem - please create a support ticket.

    Works only if you have a single vehicle.

    I can't quite comprehend why they haven't linked DLs to the HKID like most everything else!!

    And as there isn't a photo on yr license you will be asked for your ID Card. I didn't have mine on me and the cop accepted a digital copy on my phone.

    Well it is linked. But you know, old traditions are hard to break. I had registered my license from the States using my passport number (I don't know why they did that, maybe because not PR at that time). Threw the cops for a loop when I told them the number. He was trying to convince me it wasn't right lol. But yeah I do keep it in the little sleeve with my HKID and cross boarder ID just cuz I like to misplace things. The license has come in handy for other purposes too LOL.
