Driving Licence renewal 5 year.

Recommended Posts

Hello I will be doing my 5 year driving licence renewal next month. Just want to check I have the correct documents prepared. I know I could just walk in there and ask them, but I'm a bit of a lazy ass 🤓.

 

I will be renewing 2 licences, motorbike and car. This is what I presume will be needed:

- Application (can be filled out at the Transport Department)

- Passport Copies: Main page / Visa - Extension / Departure Card / 

- Residency Certificate - Tabien Baan (Yellow book) 

- Medical Certificate (I think can be obtained at most hospitals for 300 or 400 Baht)

 

Anything else? Or is this what is required?

 

Also do I have to sit through a video? When I first got my licence this wasn't necessary. 

 

If anyone has recent experience of this matter and could inform me, it would be greatly appreciated. If not i'll just have to get off my lazy ass and go to ask them 😉

 

Thanks so much!

I assume you are going to renew your licenses from 2 year to 5 year .Please make 2 copies for all documents , because you have 2 licenses. Medical certificate is no more than 1 month , and you have to sit and get a course  1 hour.

One or the other of Residency Certificate or yellow book. I used the yellow book only when I renewed earlier this year, and a friend has done the same since.

I got a medical certificate from McCormick Hospital for 90 baht.

As it's a renewal you do not need a medical certificate.

Unless it has changed recently, I did - February last year.

Guess you were unlucky..............my D/L expired in Feb......I renewed it in May (I forgot it has expired) and was not asked for the certificate.

Make of it what you will.

Hi and thanks for your reply. I had a 1 year, then a 5 year. So now this will be my third time to renew my licence. I presume it will be another 5 year licence. Yes, I should prepare 2 copies of everything. Hoping I wouldn't have to sit through the video, but sure i will survive! Thanks again!

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I will also use my yellow book for the renewal. 90 Baht not a bad price thought it would be more than. Thanks very much.

Thanks very much for the reply. Think I will just go there without the medical certificate first and see what they say, if it's needed I will nip up the road and get one. Thanks for the heads up!

A medical certificate is required to renew a 1 year licence (to 5 years) but it's not required to renew a 5 year licence.

Correct (from experience and by the rules).

(just note: 1 year temporary is 2 year since 2017)

Wear trousers, I was turned away from my 5 year renewal for wearing shorts (smart shorts), apparently you cannot take your eye test or reaction test if you are not wearing trousers!!!
