Hiring a scooter for a few days, no motorbike license but car license

Moderators, can this thread be closed?

I believe that planning of illegal activities is not allowed on this board.

Mods never closed threads when other people were talking about bribing Visa Agents to stay in Thailand (retirement visas) or about talking about bribing police officers for whatever reason so why would they close this one when there are many different questions that were asked?

No. Doing stupid things. Simply having a license, qualifications etc doesn't stop young Thai men taking risks. Young men have always done so and will continue to do so regardless of the frothing, seething, incensed irrelevant comments on an internet forum comprising of mostly older foreign guys, who apparently have a faultless past, and tossed up entering the priesthood or moving to Thailand in their latter years.

 

However, back to the OP. Do you have any useful suggestions to his other questions?

why are you defending him in contemplating breaking the law?  Why do you think age is the determination of safety on a bike?  One of these reckless young kids may be the one that hits this chap and puts him in hospital.

What do you expect?   Any rental place willing to rent you a bike when you are not qualified to ride one will of course rip you off, and frankly, you would deserve it. 

Are you visually challenged or can't read English. Just for the "challenged" I will bold it: Oh, and the gf can ride the scooter, she has a Thai motorbike drivers license.

I'll thank you to keep your stupid comment to yourself.

There have been very little in the way of helpful answers given just comments on potential unlicensed riding. Reread the OP and stop with the tunnel vision.

pathetic

Lots of miserable expats on here.

so as not to be miserable in your opinion,  you have to break Thai laws?  Is that your argument?

that was not your question, you talked about you riding it yourself.  At least be consistent, even if deluded.

Not defending him at all. I simply do not care if he rides without a license. None of my business. I never said age was a determining factor, but the death count certainly supports this. One of the reckless young chaps may mount the kerb and put him in hospital. Nothing to do with the OP riding a scooter. I understand some countries allow small bikes to be ridden using a car license, so really the issue is one of semantics.

your health/travel insurance may be invalid if you get into a accident without the proper license.

Not 'maybe'. It most certainly will be!

 

Don't be an idiot @bbi1 Change your plans.
