After years of fumbling around for change I thought it could be a good idea to get one of those Easy Pass things.

 

Does anyone have any experience applying for them and can give an outline of what the process is? The English section of the Easy Pass website only has the menu in English, the instructions are in Thai.

Walk into the office building next to the toll gates and either look for the signs for the easypass window or ask. Some buildings you will find the office/window inside the building. When I got mine years ago they wanted of copy of my drivers license, passport and visa. Not sure what they need nowdays.

For foreigners, you are required to show your passport, current Visa, work permit (if relevant) and proof of address, along with your car registration book and driver license.

For Thai, they are required to show their ID Card and car registration book.

I just applied for a second pass for our new car and had my wife register the EasyPass in her name to simplify the process.

The process took less than 10 minutes and cost 1,000 baht (which is placed as  credit on the EasyPass), so really costs nothing but time.

Just go to any Krungsri Bank and ask what they need to get one. I just showed my passport and car book with license plate # and that was it.

I top up in 7/11...costs 10 baht. Give them the easypass card and the amount to top-up PLUS 10 baht. Easy peasy.

So they have the cards and electronic devices there? In any Krungsri in the Bangkok area?

Unfortunately the link won't open for me. 

One question - how do you know when your balance is getting low?

When you pass the toll booth there is a digital display that shows the remaining amount in your account

Yes, just go to the Krungsri bank as far as I know any branch and they will give you a box with the device right after you apply. 

 

For the balance it will send you a text message to your phone when you get low. They will also send you a message if it gets below 100 baht because you won't be able to use it below 100 baht.

Is the card unique to one vehicle or can be used in multiple cars?

 

Thanks.
