  1. My son is in university in Hua Hin and the semester finishes June 6 would I be ok to drive there from Pattaya to pick him up and then drive back the same day. There is no public transport running Hua Hin to pattaya.
  2. There should not be a problem with insurance being valid with an out of date licence as it is still valid until after the emengency decree. The validity of the licence is determined by the Government not the insurance companies. The problem will be the amount of leeway you get when the offices open and the decree ends as there will be literally thousands of people with expired licences. Even before the lockdown renewing a licence for Thai's meant queueing very early at some places and still being sent away and told to return and queue again the next day. they just can not process them all in a couple of days. It could take weeks as every day more expire. I hope they dispence with some of the requirements like watching the same video everytime you go.
  3. I don't see why you should be penalized for living overseas in retirement. If you payed your NI contributions you should be treated the same. At the end of the day they are already saving the gov money by living overseas. They are not claiming for other things such at winter payments. Then the big one they are not a burden on the NHS and care systems this alone must save the gov millions but they still penalize them. They say it is due to them not being subject to UK inflation and cost of living. Do they not realize inflation happens everywhere and the cost of living in some countries is higher than it is in the UK. pensioners are not asking for more just to be treated the same.
