I checked online somewhere (can't remember) and it did say for 5 year renewal not required so I did not bother getting one. Was half expecting them to ask.

Maybe the requirement is only for temporary two year license, and not for renewal to five year??  Maybe Chiang Mai's requirement is just different (often CM makes up their own rules) than Chon Buri.  At any rate, it's easy and cheap to get one so I will get another one when I apply for the motorcycle license.

I think ChonBuri might be the only Province that provides that fast of a turnaround.

Udon Thani last year about 5-10 minutes from walking into the immigration office to walking out with two certificate of residence.

There is no requirement for a medical certificate when renewing a 5 year licence at Chonburi (and most places apparently). You were getting your first 2 year which requires a certificate.

I am not certain, but I thought I paid 200 for mine (one) in June 2017... just wonder, have they gone up?

Been 300 for at least 3 years. I paid 300 in June this year (at Jomtien) when I needed to get an IDP.

My experience in Si Saket over the past 3 days...

Went Immigration to get a certificate, got told to go to the LTO. Submitted copies and originals. Forgot the medical certs. No photos. Got given a letter to take to Immigration. A bit late in the day so.... Next day went to Immigration. Within 15 minutes, a Certificate was in my hands, no fees, plus a new 90 day reporting date. Delayed a bit more, a bit late in the day to get to the LTO, went to get 2 medical certificates in my hands for 100 Baht. (Car and bike licences). Today, gave the residence cert and medical certs to the LTO, watched the videos, took the depth perception, colour and braking reflex tests and walked out with 2 licences for 310 baht. 205 for car and 105 for bike. I arrived at 13:00 and was on my way home with brand new licences by 14:30.I

 

I make no comment on other people's experiences, just saying mine. I thought it was effectively and efficiently handled and could possibly have been completed in a day, if I hadn't faffed about.

So it was free then?

I paid 300 baht last year at Jomtien Immigration. I don't know if the price is the same today.

Did you get a Certificate of Residence without a photo attached?

FYI....  I went this afternoon to my local Immigration office (Nakhon Pathom) in order to obtain a Certificate of Residency to support my forthcoming 5 year driving licence renewal.

 

Entered the office at 2:30pm.  There were 4 IO at their desks - 3 for extensions and 1 for 90 day reporting and re-entry stamping.  There were 2 customers being served by the extension IOs.  Apart from myself and the other 2 customers there were no else waiting.

 

Handed my application form to the admin lady who was manning the reception desk by the entrance door, and she directed me to one of the IO who was free.  I handed the IO my application form and my passport.  He immediately placed the photo page of my passport onto the scanner on his desk and then looked at his screen.  I could see clearly that it was the information from the chip in my passport (including the photo).  He then scrolled through his computer for a few moments  Again I could see clearly that he was checking my extension history, TM30 and 90 day status.

 

Although I had copies of my passport he only asked me if I had 2 photos.  He put the photo page of my passport onto a normal printer/scanner and ran off a copy which he asked me to sign.  He then asked me to take a seat in the waiting area and handed my application form, copy of my passport photo page and 2 photos to one of the admin ladies in the back office.

 

10 minutes later the admin lady appeared and handed the IO the letter and my passport,  He checked it, signed it and endorsed my photo/letter with a large round red stamp.  He then beckoned me back over and hand me the letter and my passport.

 

I walked out of the office at 2:45pm.  Cost.... FREE 👍 as it should be.

 

I have previously commented that the staff at Nakhon Pathom Immigration Office are really helpful and good.  I've seen them working under pressure, with a waiting area full, and yet they smile, chat with their customer and treat everyone with respect.

 

From what I read on TV Nakhon Pathom IO staff are and exception.  I just hope they stay like that.

When TRAT transport office refused to register a car for me with yellow book and pink I D,  Trat immigration gave one to me free, even rang the L.T.O. to no avail, processed it straight away as i had to return to L.T.O. before it closed.
