BEIJING — The city of Beijing has full implementation of strict regulations for car-hailing services after a five months transition period.
Starting from May 20, platforms and drivers without licenses will not be able to provide such services in Beijing.
In December, the city’s transport authorities issued regulations that featured a number of restrictions concerning drivers’ household registration, car plate, vehicle model, age, and insurance.
According to the regulations, drivers must have a local residence permit and vehicles must be registered locally.
On May 17, Didi Chuxing and CAR received business licenses issued by Beijing transport authorities, bringing the total number to five.
China unveiled its first nationwide regulations for car-hailing services in July, granting them legal status.
