Drivers licence

Recommended Posts

I did try and find this info, hope someone can advise.

I wish to obtain a driving and bike license.

Obtaining my certificate of residence shortly. Should I obtain 2 RC since 2 licences.

I Have current AU license. In au you have one license for car and bike on one license.

Can I do everything on the day at the department of land and transport. Things such as medical can be done there or nearby office etc. 

Finally, I live close to MRT, ding daeng, can I go to any office and do you need make appointment. 

Thankyou.

My experience from the MRT office up North. I only needed 1 Residence Cert. for both licences. Even though the IO said I need 2, so I got 2,

but MRT was happy with 1 and made a copy of it.

I showed up in the morning at MRT, they wanted me to watch a video, but for whatever reason it did not work. Then the Color, reaction and another test.

Picture taken, now on 5 years licenses which expire on the birthday.

Easy up here, I hope the same for you.

Only 1 RC for 2 licences.   but 2 copies
I had a IDL from Aust, copy frount page and inside.
Just walk into any local clinic.
Health certificate about 100 thb.
you want 2 licences...Make 2 copies of everything.
With IDL from OZ only sit colour and brake test.
I don't know for sure if you can get Thai licence with just
an Australian state licence.
Good luck aussiep

The IDL as you call it, is an International Driving PERMIT, which is merely a translation of your National/State licence, which you must have to get the IDP and a Thai licence.

You will need a IDP with your AU DL or you will have to take all the tests for both vehicles.

My AU mate had to take the tests in our province don't know how other provinces operate.

Ummm...... Might look at an agent see if that's more straightforward. 

Haven't seen the IDP mentioned before.

Also wasn't in the short video in pinned topic in this thread.

Thanks.
