Two major Chinese cities Beijing and Shanghai have released draft rules on car-hailing services to solicit public opinion.
Both cities are requiring drivers to have local hukou and vehicles with local car plates.
According to Shanghai's draft, vehicles with less than seven seats must be registered with local car plates.
The cars should be privately owned and insurances for people on the vehicles should be purchased.
The drivers must be the car owners and have at least one year of driving experience.
China legalized ride-sharing services in July.
According to the national regulations, local governments are responsible for issuing licenses for car-hailing taxis and car-hailing drivers after evaluating them.
