Yes that is what is the scene till last year. No reports later to that as season is yet to start.

However be mentally prepared to politely explain your plan and be accommodative if stopped on the way.

Season is approaching and I am all ears to know any latest developments or updates.
We drove to Ladakh in August 2016, we did not come across any checkpoints.

I think the position remains the same. Self drive vehicles are allowed till Leh. And then we need to hire a local taxi for sightseeing.

Anyone did a trip on a self drive vehicle this year?

We visited Ladakh during Sep '17 & had a rental bike from CHD in our convoy which was stopped at a check post on the way to Khardungla set up by the taxi union.(it looked just like an army/police check post!) There was one lady sitting in a M800 who told us that we can't go any further, as it's a rental bike. In the end she agreed to let us proceed after paying 500.

Since it was just her manning the point we could have just driven off but we were unsure if any of her cronies would stop us ahead so decided to pay up & proceed for peace of mind.

We did not face any other checks after that.
