Each application will be carefully reviewed by the committee board before it is approved. While short driving trips are open for application to all current members, however, there is a requirement that members must have a short driving trip experience with the Hong Kong Land Rover Club, prior to a medium or a long driving trip application will be considered, regardless of your individual driving experience. Each foreign drive’s application procedure may be different, please refer to Exco member’s instruction, but generally as follow :
Very much in advance of your foreign trip, you will need to apply/renew your necessary document for you and your passengers. These may include your :
- Hong Kong ID card
- Passport with relevant VISAs (some countries require ample validity)
- Hong Kong driving licence (NOT accepted in China)
- International driving licence (NOT accepted in China)
- Vehicle registration document (Aurthorisation is required if under company ownership)
- Vehicle insurance policy
And if the trip is planned to enter/exit through China, you will also need your :
- Home Land return card (if applicable)
- China driving licence
Travel agent may request pictures of your vehicle for the application purpose, 2 pictures showing vehicle’s front 45 degrees angle, and rear 45 degrees angle. Both front and rear vehicle registration mark must be clearly visible, and that there is no other vehicle in the background. If, for example a rear step ladder, light guards or any equipment are installed that will obscure the number plate from a 45 degrees angle, such equipment should be removed prior to taking picture.
All the required document are to be scanned, and saved digitally, and together with the vehicle pictures email to the organising committee. Poor and unclear scan, or other format will be rejected. It is your responsibility to obtain the required document before the application procedure, and to ensure they are valid throughout the trip until your vehicle is returned to your home port.
Document submission procedure, and other relevant information will be announced via a dedicated chat group setup by the committee on WhatsApp for each trip. We strongly suggest you are closely updated, and remain contactable with that chat group once we have confirmed your enrolment status, as important trip information, outstanding document and payment notification will be announced, possibly in a very short notice.
For safety reasons and for navigation purposes, a VHF transceiver installation is a compulsory club requirement for any foreign driving trip, a handheld device does not meet this requirment. For details, please click www.landroverclub.hk/private-mobile-radio-system-licence
Important safety and navigation instructions will be broadcasted via VHF in Cantonese language only, it is a compulsory requirement to have a fluent Cantonese communicator per each vehicle, he/she does not need to be the driver of that vehicle, but must be available to make radio communication for the duration of the driving segment(s) for the entire driving trip.
Your vehicle and other gears should be well maintained, and be reminded to have sufficient medication(if required), and follow your doctor’s advice. A trip meeting is normally held after the application procedure is completed, to provide members with detailed information about the departure, and the opportunity to make queries.
On The Road
Safety is of paramount importance, you are requested to maintain a safe and courteous manner towards other members and vehicles, please follow the instructions from the Operation Vehicles – navigation vehicle, trip committee leader, co-navigation vehicle, and supporting vehicle(if applicable), and listen out on the VHF radio at all time!!
It is your own responsibility to assess the traffic condition, road condition, your own ability while on or off road. Traffic information around the convoy may be transmitted by Operation Vehicles from time to time, but you must make your own judgement on how you use such information. Causal conversation is encouraged during highway driving, however, non-essential conversation should be kept to minimum during busy traffic, city route, or when situation arises.
In the unfortunate event should an accident or incident occur :
- Stay calm
