Driving on the highway in China and you will find sometime it’s take so much time to go through a toll gate.

OR

WeChat Pay is so convenient that you forgot to bring some cash and you have to borrow 5 RMB from other drivers?

But with ETC ( Electronic toll collection) that all changes.

Update / Change the user information

 

There are two situations of updating the user information.

If the car owner is still the same, but the car plate, contact phone number, or contact address is changed, you can directly go to ETC office to change the information.

In this case, you will need to provide the ETC card, the original ID card of the car owner and your original ID/Passport, and a letter of attorney.

 

If you’re driving company’s car, you will need: the ETC card, recommendation letter from the company (车辆所有人介绍信), a copy of company’s organization code with company’s stamp (组织机构代码证复印件加盖公章), a copy of company’s business license with company’s stamp (营业执照复印件加盖公章) and your original passport.

If you need to change the car owner, first of all, you need to change your ETC card then can you change the car owner’s information part. And all of the card user under the previous car owner’s name have to be cancelled first and move it under the new car owner’s name. This will need to be extra charged.

This is very troublesome, so we have the text in Chinese so you can ask your Chinese friends to help out.

车辆所有人变更

* 办理车辆所有人变更业务时,须将速通电子标签变更后,方可办理速通卡的车辆所有人变更业务
* 原车辆所有人须将预变更速通卡注销清户
* 新车辆所有人申办速通卡
* 办理车辆所有人变更须交纳变更费用

To be noted that, ETC can be used in whole China except Tibet and Hainan Province.

Afer you got your brand new ETC card, you can drive to anywhere you want in China!
