Phitsanulok office say that I DO need a medical certificate and a Yellow Book, (for which they say I must be married) NOT Cert. of Residence. P'lok Imm say that C of R is sufficient. We'll see next month.

Must be married to acquire a Yellow Book, that’s a new one

Yes, and the guy at the Amphoe was totally adamant, even when I told him I was not divorced in UK.

They should not be asking for a medical cert. this is from the DLT main website, the bottom section is the relevant one

5 years ago I was refused a yellow book by the Amphur but a helpful underling quietly suggested the tessabaan. No problem at all in fact quite the reverse - they couldn’t have been more helpful. I wasn’t married then, just my house owner and PuYaiBaan and the documents mentioned by “blue sofa”. 

The Amphur is Warin Chamrab, UBON and the tessabaan is Saen Suk.

Why not try to find an office which does not required you to pass any tests....then you'll be as good as any Thai driver. lol

Next time, I think I will be looking farther afield than Nong Khai to avoid the peripheral test. The basic test I will breeze it easily.

And yet another twist in this story. I think I may need a Medical Certificate, so off to the town next door to see  lady doctor, who in the past has prescribed me tablets for various ailments, and given injections to other members of the family. All OK.

Went to her today to get Medical Cert.....Oh no cannot do, I am not a REAL Doctor.

Must go to clinic in the next town.

I haven't followed your story but:

For a 5 yr to 5 yr extension there is NO medical certificate required.

For 2 yr to 5 yr a medical certificate IS required.

And for a 5yr to a 2yr a medical cert was required.... 

 

 

Yes, I had to go from a 5yr to a temp 2yr licence as I was no longer on a Non-Immigrant visa.

So you were on a tourist visa then, when they reduced you down to a 2 year DL???

The man at Phitsanulok DLT mentioned a Medical Cert, so I thought I'd get one just in case. He was the one who also said I need a Yellow Book, but I have C of R instead. Thanks.

Best to just have it...

 

At the DLT front desk I was told I didn’t  need a medical cert. 

At the counter they wanted one. Luckily I’d come prepared so didn’t have to make two trips to the DLT via a clinic...
