1.Selecting a driving school

You can access the list of qualified driving schools in Shanghai by visiting the Shanghai Motor Vehicle Driver Training Industry Website or via its interactive Driving School Map.

4.Protecting your rights 

If you encounter issues related to the quality of teaching services provided by the driving school during the training process, you should collect and retain evidence and report them to the respective driving school. A complaint hotline can be found through the "Shanghai Timing Driving Training Service Platform". 

In cases of disputes concerning the fulfillment of training contract terms and refunds, you should retain relevant evidence (including but not limited to the training contract and invoice receipts) and attempt to resolve the issue through negotiation with the driving school. If negotiations are unsuccessful, you can resort to arbitration through the Shanghai Arbitration Commission or file a civil lawsuit in court.
