DLT Not Issuing New Drivers Licenses

Recommended Posts

I saw a tweet and a fb post that the Land Transport Dept in Bangkok and surrounding provinces will stop issuing driving licenses due to Covid-19.

My 5 year license expires next month. 

Does anyone know anything about this, and what we are supposed to do about renewing licenses?

You must be referring to this:

 

https://www.dlt.go.th/th/public-news/view.php?_did=2573

 

Statement made on March 18. As I understand what they are saying, they are limiting the number of people who are allowed in the room at a time, and instituting cleaning between each batch, so you can expect it to take a very long day and it could make it impossible to get in and renew your license if you don't show up very early.

 

There is nothing I have seen on their website that they will no longer be renewing licenses.

 

I would be interested to know if there is anything more, as my Thai is extremely poor.

My 2 year will expire soon. How long do I have from the expiry date do I have before I need to start the whole licensing process over?

They will issue a new licence some weeks prior to the old one running out. I did my one some 5/6 weeks prior to my one going T/ts up as it saved me from getting the new doctors certificate.

Best to stay away until after Corona, these offices are usually packed. Avoid where police checkpoints usually are, they will be loving the news
