I thought I would just get the Chinese licence and the job would be done... I hope I'm not mistaken.
Thanks for the answer!

You do not need a "Residence Permit", unless you have a working visa. If you have an L Visa, you just need a temporary residence form. You should have got the form from a local police station within 24 hours of entering China...
Residence Permit for Foreigner is the visa that one gets for working in mainland China (some people refer to this as the Z-visa -which is theoretically incorrect). Z-visa is the visa initially given to an individual by Chinese embassies located outside China in other territories/countries. The Z-visa allows one to enter the country to take up employment & is usually valid for 30 days upon entering mainland China. Once one arrives on the Z-visa, they & the employing company/unit must then apply for the employment visa aka "Residence Permit for Foreigner in PRC" Therefore one cannot continue working on the Z visa indefinitely (its purpose if just to get the perspective employee here). The temporary residency form referred to is needed by nearly all foreigners staying in mainland China. This is actually the Registration of Residence form/slip which is obtained from various PSB offices that register foreigners, that one must obtain and keep in their possession. It seems in many places in PRC this Registration of Residence form is to be renewed annually even if the place of residence has not changed. That might not be the case if a foreigner has a "Residence Permit for Foreigner in PRC" that is longer than 12 months in duration.
My question concerning the X visa (student visa) was related to whether it also gets converted in some way as the Z visa does to something similar to the "Residence Permit for Foreigner in PRC"? If not then perhaps there is a temporary drivers license category that exists, that wasn't available before. I ask as it does seem that there is some alteration or amendment to the rules that can allow a student visa holder or even holders of L (visitor) visas to PRC to get a drivers license. For example there is a motorcycle touring business that can arrange riders to bring their own bikes into PRC with relevant carnie and assist participants to obtain their Chinese drivers license. So it would appear that L visa holders can get it. Although are various types of L visas.

If I apply for a license, can I get it within the same day? Or will they schedule my test some other day?
Also, what happens after 90 days? Can I just renew my license or do I have to take the test all over again?
I'm planning to go to chongqing this summer for my studies so i'll have a student visa and i would like to know if i can take the driving test there because i didn't have the time to get my driving license in France so i was hoping to get it in china.
