Chinese driving license..

\
I already have a driving license in sweden but that’s not enough here. And maybe that’s a good thing coz people around don’t really know how to drive. I want to be able to just go whenever to countryside and bring more equipment i.e so I can take 360 degree images. Yeah!\
\
And my final goal is to have a motorbike license and be really portable. :D A nice bike here cost about 6000RMB new and that’s with the look of something like HD. If I settle with something more simple I would think 3000RMB is enough. \
\
Back to license. The school is placed outside Kunming and a week ago I went there with my friend Linn. after about an hours trip we arrived just to find a bunch of guards outside the main gate. We where told that a huge meeting called GMS (Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam economy, friendship meeting) had caused a two day shutdown of the school. They also told us that we could comeback two days later and do whatever we needed to do. \
\
Two days later (four days ago) we arrived only to find that nobody worked. At least nobody in the driving department. Very typical. So our more-then-one-hour-trip had to be done again. TODAY! \
\
I’m not sure what I have to do to get my license but I heard the following. 1. a test of 100 questions in Chinese with translator. (I pick my own translator) 2. a poorly translated test document in English that I for sure have to do at least twice. 3. the test AND a driving test. 4. Give him money enough. :) I’m not going to try the last one. \
\
The Girl Linn that is with me has already done the test and got 99/100. So she’s going to be my translator if test is being done today. I hope they agree. :D and according to her it’s the same test. Very nice. \
\
Now I should go up and get me self some noodles. Have a nice day. I’ll be back!\
