if your not sure just get a med cert,  I used a search engine, made a call, and got mine from the local  dermatologist  tiny office that seemed to be geared for  botox treatments and things  ...... 300 baht  done   not  100baht though   lol

5 year to 5 year, no medical certificate needed. It is on the DLT website in English.

I just renewed my 5 year car and 2 year bike license in Ubon 2 days ago. Seems like requirements changed slightly since last update here ( or a different staff working that day 😉 )

I handed in for both license renewals:

2 x Passport Main Page copies

2x Visa Page copies

2x Entry Stamp copies

2x Work Permit copies ( Main page and latest stamp page )

2x Yellow Book

1x Car Drivers license copy

1x Motorbike Drivers license copy

 

She took everything. Returned the copies of my drivers licenses and told me to get a medical certificate. She said 1 medical certificate is enough. Got the certificate ( I think I paid 60 Baht for it...or 80? ). Returned, went to the first floor with the documents, handed them in and was told to return at 13:00. That is their testing / lecturing time.

I returned at 13:00, had to take a color blind test, listened to a lecture in Thai for about 30 minutes ( make sure your mobile phone battery is fully charged....you may be bored out of your mind ). Paid the license fees ( 855 Baht for both ). Had picture taken and got both my licenses within a few minutes. Done.

 

Edit:

I went to the same DLT as Isan Farang located here: 15.279968, 104.861503

Makes sense as medical cert. is required (only) for extension from 2 year license.

approved translator

certified translator by which organization?

 

I'm living not far Sawang Daen Din since nearly 14 years ;

the first time I came to the Amphur, the civil servant who makes official papers for foreigners answered to me : it doesn't exist :cheesy: .....

Because she never saw one before , so it doesn't exist ..

 

Now she knows she can make a yellow tabian ban for foreigners;

 

And I know also that it serves strictly nothing except to prove his place of residence; it saves 500 baht at the immigration office every 5 years .. !!

100 baht each year .. 
At Sakon Nakhon they require a certificate of residence when applying for an extension of their driving license; (motobike + sedans, pickup, minibus)
they also want a medical certificate; it must be delivered by a doctor to the public hospital

Those who, like me, have been living in Thailand for a long time know very well that each province does its own personal cooking with regard to all administrative documents;
what is valid in Chonburi is not valid in Udon Thani or Sakon Nakhon ...but maybe will be tomorrow ...:crazy:

 

and last thing is not useless,
if you present the day after the anniversary date of your license you will get six years of license and not five.
