PHUKET:-- The ‘Drive Thru for Tax’ at the Phuket Land Transport Office (PLTO) launched in late June has proved very popular, with about 100 road users using the service each day, PLTO Chief Banyat Kantha has announced.
 

The ‘Drive Thru’ service was launched to speed up the process of people renewing their annual car registrations.

 

The process takes less than two minutes, Chief Banyat explained.

Drive thru 90 days, residential address reporting and now Car Tax- progress is indeed being made. I saw one of these Drive-thru's in PKK last month and though what a great idea for Phuket as well. Clearly my brainwaves had an effect. To be fair even going inside was a painless experience depending on the queue. The LTO has always seemed keen to modernise. They even run a limited counter service during lunchtime.

 

Remember- evolution, NOT Revolution is the key to improved services here.

 

Cue countless posts from moaners who detest any form of progress.

No wonder humans are getting fatter. 

Yes, it's very slimming walking into a waiting room and sitting there for hours.

 

My lady did my 90 day report at the immigration drive-through the other day, they asked her for a tax for providing the service. She declined.

I think these drive thru's are meant for people to go themselves. My agent told me he can not go there, has to go inside with longer waiting times and more required paperwork.

Car tax drive thru an excellent service, quick and simple.

What a great idea.

Did they ask you if you wanted fries with that!

OK.

Don't mind me, just being facetious, There's a lot more  opportunity/need for it on TVF these days.

Talked to her again, I now believe they initially thought she was an agent.

There you go.

 

I find this an excellent development, and it contradicts the often heard mantra 'they want you to use an agent'.
