Contact the translation agency to translate the overseas driving license and seal on it.

Go to the vehicle management office to apply for an overseas driver's license, apply for a Chinese driver's license and submit materials.

After passing the approval, pay the fee and make an appointment for the examination of subject one of the day (there are two opportunities for the examination. If you fail the first examination, you can immediately take the second examination).

After passing the examination, you can obtain a Chinese driver's license on the same day.
