Bad drivers face online test to get permit back

Drivers who have at least 12 points deducted from their licenses within a 12-month period will have it revoked until they pass a written traffic regulations test to get a new one.

Instead of taking education sessions at traffic police service counters, those in Shanghai can now apply and take the classes online, police said yesterday.

Drivers can apply on the official website ( and start the sessions right away. They are required to take seven days of classes, at least three hours every day, including a maximum of five days’ online classes and a minimum of two days in a real classroom.

The measure does not cover drivers of large passenger vehicles, buses, tractors or large trucks, who will have to sit in class for at least five days instead of two.

Repeat license losers who have 12 points deducted twice in a one-year period will have to take all of their classes in a real classroom.

During online classes, drivers are required to turn on their web-cam, and the system takes pictures of them learning and watching the videos as evidence.

At the end of a three-hour session, an administrator will assess whether the drivers have effectively learned the content.

After all classes are finished, drivers can make a reservation online for an exam leading to a new driver’s license.

The content is available in Chinese only.
