Hi,

Not sure if it is a good idea. But actually, it is quite hard to get a car plate. There is a kind of lottery to get car plates in Shenzhen.

Besides cars, you may consider the subway which is quite convenient or the bus.

Another way is to buy an electric car. Then I heard that it is easier to get a car plate.

Besides, you may also consider bikes or electric bikes (since scooter appear to be forbidden in Shenzhen).

Best,

Yes I also think it is better to buy an electric bike than a car.

Also, before buying a car, you need to get a chinese driver license. It is not very complicated but still. If you buy an electric bike, you probably don't need to worry about that (can anyone confirm?).

Most electric bikes are forbidden.
