Thai driving licence on your phone starts tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Always have extra phone batteries with you with an EDL when you refuse to bring along your plastic card licence.

Most of the time I show the police the receipt which some other police officer gave me when they took away my license.

And when they look at that document they know they can't take my license away a second time so they just let me go. No need for any digital license. 😉

It could be used by burglars for information on when your house is empty.

How would the burglars get that info?

The only reason photo of the passport won't allow you to pass borders it's only because one cannot stamp

phones. Custom Officers would be totally lost without Entry Stamps in their hands.

No, the photo doesn't contain the security parts of the passport.

How will the DLT know my blood group, illnesses, allergies etc etc. Only if I know and tell them what I want them to know. Load of unnecessary rubbish. Stick with that massive piece of plastic !

My GF just informed me that this information, blood group etc, is on their Thai ID card anyway.

 

Will it be necessary to go on-line to access the Licence? Or will it be an app installed inside your phone?

Next thing in your phone will be the passport and visa, with biometric info, of course. You get convenience they get tracking tools.

and then you  lose it

Good question, how do they get it onto you phone ?  I have never had internet on a mobile phone, no need for it + cannot see a small screen..... my PC has a 42" monitor, and before this one was 32"  for past 10 years..

You are making a very bold assumption that those doing the tracking are both honest and have integrity and have your interests at heart! 🤔

And are you convinced the databases are totally secure? I'm not.

 

But I do support the concepts involved to make life easier, more efficient etc.

 

I wonder if the overall site accessed to look at the license as it is in the LTO database also includes broader information about licenses, renewals etc. For example will it now be possible to renew a license totally on-line.

 

Further, my Thai driving licenses (car & bike) are lifetime licences. I'm 74 YO, i've read that over a certain age (not sure what the age is) lifetime license holders (possibly all license holders) have to do a retest or whatever as they get older, but getting clear information on this point seems to be elusive.

 

Perhaps the site accessed to look at the actual license on-line could contain broader information, like the point above.

Can I be fined for not possessing a driving license, if my phone battery is depleted?
