Renewing 5 Year license at DTL Morchit

Recommended Posts

You are in the good position to have a work permit which is accepted as proof of residence.

For many other foreigners getting an accepted proof of residence is the biggest hurdle.

So that's it... just wanted to share in case it's helpful for anyone else.  It's useful to have recent, uo-to-date stories on things like this.

 

Does anyone if the same rule of thumb regarding the extra  year applies to Thais as well as falangs?

 

 

P.S...     Outstanding post, tweezer.   Thank you very much.

Thanks... and yes, the extra year applies to anyone.  It's the way their system counts up to the expirey date.  Current date + 5 years, then up to the next birthday.  It should apply to all, though I haven't verified that with a Thai person's story...

I believe an affidavit from your home country embassy will be accepted.  Yes, it's an extra step of bureaucracy but I think that's what you need.   Maybe another user can confirm if I'm correct.

No difference for foreigner or Thais.

And the DL is not the only document where the "birthday" rule applies.

Expires on the x-th birthday following date of issue.

Similar applies for Thai ID cards (8 to 9 years validity).

When renewing a 5 year did they require a medical certificate?

Nope... not required for the renewal of the 5 year license.

Hello forum, 

Does anyone knows if they will accept my pink foreigners ID card to replace my expired passport number eventhough my driving licence is still valid for another 2 years.

Every single bank account, even my ktb krungsri credit cards were changed to my pink foreigners id card for identification purposes. 

 

At the moment I'm on my 3rd 5 year driving licence 

Thank you 

Walailak

And huge thanks to the TV user here who posted the tip that you should renew your license shortly AFTER it expires so you get an extra year.  Like I said, I renewed mine one day after it expired, so the new on expires on my birthday, exactly 6 years minus one day from today.

That's what I suspected:) I will be renewing in July. So the WP is still ok to use? I ask this, as one fellow worker went to get hers renewed and she was told to get a residence certificate (I believe she did have her WP with her), so I'm not sure what happened. Perhaps she did change addresses, as you mentioned. I've always used my WP at Nonthaburi. Never needed a residence certificate, so am wondering if the rules have changed.
