I hope the OP, and others, realises he has been driving for so long in Thailand illegally. Sure the IDP is issued for 12 months, but after becoming resident in Thailand - defined as three months I believe, then you are required to get a Thai license. You are not supposed to use the IDP as a resident.

Yes we know....

I am also red/green colour blind or deficient Mr.BB, fortunately I can still tell Orange from green.

It is said that even the most intelligent person will seem lacking when they speak on a subject of which they know nothing.

The poster obviously knows nothing of colour blindness.

I have a red/green colour deficiency which amongst other things means that when playing snooker I have to be aware of the brown as once the game has started in.my eyes it blends in with the reds.

It does not affect recognition of traffic signals, but congratulations on a sanctimonious post.

Someone else who does not understand what colour blindness actually is. If a colour test was so important why don't western countries like the UK and Australia include it in their driving test. How have I managed to drive for 60 years without any problems?

Maybe try to answer the question, surely your colour blindness has not affected other areas..

You obviously know nothing about colour blindness, so why are you even commenting?

I have the exact same problem with the brown and the reds. The brown repeatedly has to be pointed out to me. Guessing there are no pro-snooker players who are colour blind.

All this discussion is interesting ,,, I hope you always drive with someone beside you who 

is not colour blind... They have these tests for a reason you know ????

And conversely, as someone already posted, "If a colour test was so important why don't western countries like the UK and Australia include it in their driving test"?.

 

Just think one in 10 men in those countries are colourblind, have not been colourblind tested and they create havoc - oh my god :post-4641-1156693976:

May I suggest the only reason LOS has a colour test is related to traffic light colours, sod all else....Unless you can tell me what else colours and black top use need colour recognition..

Unless the position of the colors in the traffic light change regularly this is unlikely.

 

From my experience they are pretty much red on top, yellow in the middle, and green on bottom.

 

He can print this handy tip and keep it in the car with him. Problem solved!

ok i'll give it a go Red flags on load overhangs,red on truck striped signs,green on truck running lights, traffic signs red, yellow, and orange,red no parking road markings,yellow centre lines,blue and red clearway signs. and you should pay particular attention to the flashing blue light behind you. :1zgarz5:

But that is all stuff we know about regardless of colour and in LOS there are no flashing blue lights behind us, unless some areas the BiB are going the UK way.....🤣

I had a friend who had an RAC circuit motor racing license, he was colour blind..😋
