How to get a Thai drivers license
- If you can not read and / nor understand the Thai language, you are allowed to bring a interpreter to fill the forms and translate the possible instruction class and tests.
- Valid Passport with Valid Non-immigrant Visa
- Signed copies of the passport's first page, the page with the current non-immigrant visa, the page with the last entry stamp and the TM-card.
- A certified letter of address from the applicant's embassy, or from the Immigration Bureau (document can not be older than 30 days).
Feel free to roll the dice and follow the omnipotent ones advice.....or do what the Thai gov suggest...
^ Don't forget the ฿50 Med Cert.
I'm using my experience (My first TDL one year, and my second five year license were gotten with Tourist Visas as I wasn't working, married or retired here). All done no problem at all.
To check things haven't changed I checked reports of such on the net prior to posting. Nothing has changed.
Of course some people don't understand Thailand and think if something is written down as a rule then that is that.
I mean, just look at the people jumping though all the teacher licensing hoops!
As proven, they're usually (quite close to always in fact) cool with it.
When will you be moving to Thailand?
I remember Pattaya being famous for the 500b driving test. Show up and give them 500b, have your driving license in the time it takes to print it.
It was only 200b for Thais.
Dual pricing eh, a scourge on this Earth.
Guy Manpoof sux nuts for $$.
Tomcat trained. Satisfaction guaranteed.
haha wow well that is all good news then, I laughed at the 'no beeping the horn' bit. Trust the Thais to think about the peace and harmony of the situation.
My uncle lives in Chiang Mai so hopefully he will be able to help me out with all of that. I am not planning on riding that much anyway, its just so dangerous (number 1 cause of foreigner death in SE Asia). Also I already have an International Drivers Permit. Because I do not hold a current Australian motorbike licence, I do not think the IDP would be applicable in that situation because the rider section is clearly marked 'no' (although whether they care about that is another story I guess). Either way, as long as I can get a 'licence valid in the relevant country' then I will be insured! Which is some peace of mind for me
And I am coming to Thailand on October 8. Got a flight to Bangkok first. I am pretty excited to be honest!
TIT . . anything is possible.
If that fails...go to the next cubicle and repeat....
If still no joy....go home....change your shirt and have a shave......go back to the building the next day and do it all again.....
God bless you PP..
No such thing as a 15 day visa I'm afraid.
A 15 day Visa Exemption when crossing into Thailand via a land border without a valid visa, yes. Visa, no.
You should get a 30 day Visa Exemption when you eventually fly here.
Though I'd suggest researching the place a bit more than you have.
What an interesting little exchange that was.
