Hmmm....I would think a Thai person would be able to find out quite easily how to obtain a Thai motorbike license....or any type of license.  Strange that she would ask a foreigner for help.

Plus having done the procedure for the car already. Doesn't make sense to me. Or is it just to give the guy a bit of work? 🙂

 

Anyways, @chickenslegs already posted the solution.

My wife is renewing her 5-year licence at Banglamung (Pattaya) DLT.

2 weeks ago she attended the DLT with all her documents (no medical required for a 5-year to 5-year). After queueing for about 1 hour she was given an appointment for her tests (colour, depth perception, brakes).

Her appointment date is 25 November - this is not a typo.

 

So, OP - I suggest she goes to her DLT with house book, ID card, and photocopies. She will then be given an appointment and told what she needs to bring with her.

My Thai partner went to Banglamung DLT on Tuesday this week - needs to renew 5 year licenses for car & MC - received an appointment for about 5 months later - it is on 19 February 2021.

Do they get a letter to give to the police if stopped. I am sure by the time the renewal appointment comes around , the license will be well out of date ?

If she never had a motorcycle license she will probably be required to attend a driving school first.

 

A Thai friend I know just got a license for autos.  The 'school' cost 5,000 baht and lasted 5 days.

thanks you but it look still closed ? and cant find waht to do first EG book a test center ? book a test? or get a mediical ?etc... 

The procedure is very much the same for everyone, with a bit of variation. As a Thai national she can book the test online and do the video online. My wife had an old lifetime licence and could still access the system, but failing that can phone to book. As a first time test shouldn't have to wait too long, unlike 5 year to 5 year, my niece is on a 4 month wait for renewal.

When going for the test she would need current licence, ID card, tabien baan and a medical certificate.

My niece is on a 4 month wait and was told if stopped to show appointment for renewal, it would be on the DLT app. Apparently Thai 5 year licences are automatically extended if renewal has been booked, not sure about foreigners, my appointment to renew was hand written.
