Road Traffic (Registration and Licensing of Vehicles) Regulations (Chapter 374e)
(Notice under Regulation 3(C))

          For the purpose of support and assistance in fighting against the COVID-19 disease in Hong Kong, the Mainland government will deploy mobile testing units and related vehicles (the "Vehicles") for carrying out anti-epidemic duties in Hong Kong.

          Pursuant to regulation 3(c) of the Road Traffic (Registration and Licensing of Vehicles) Regulations, Chapter 374E, I hereby exempt the Vehicles while being used in Hong Kong with effect from 19 March 2022 (the "Effective Date"). The exemption will expire on the 90th day counting from the Effective Date (excluding the Effective Date), or an earlier date when the duties are no longer required.

         The above exemption does not affect the application of other laws, including but not limited to the Road Traffic Ordinance, Chapter 374 and its subsidiary legislation (except Chapter 374E), of Hong Kong to the Vehicles when they are being driven on a road in Hong Kong.
