motorcycle driver license missing


Recommended Posts

Does anyone has expirience what to do?

This morning at checkpoint with my motobike, I found out that only my car license was in my wallet.

Usually I carry both with me.

Luckily the officer had his sunglasses on, so he did not notice I showed him the car license.

Now I do have photo copy of my license.

Do I need police report first, or can I go to the Banglamung office to apply for a new one?

Thanks for usefull advice

Police report first then off to your local DLT office.

 

I recall reading somewhere (within the past couple of years) that a Police Report is no longer required to replace a lost Driving / Motorcycle License. 

 

A couple of years ago, my Wife (Thai) simply replaced her license at the DLT (Area 3 Bangkok), no police report required.

 

 

Thus: Op - simply go to your DLT (with your passport) and ask to replace the license.

I guess you mean a Certificate of Residence.

This was for the original motorcy lic application or the replacement of the lost one for which you said you also had a photo copy?

Thats nuts... It seems they are making you apply for a new license rather than simply replacing a lost license. 

 

Someone at the DLT is making up their own interpretation of the regulations - No residence permit is required to renew a lost license. 

 

Are you close enough to a different DLT to try there before this spirals to the ridiculous to obtain a 'Proof of Residence’ ?

The polic report costs an enormous 20 baht and you do get a reciept.

Indeed, but it seems that it's no longer needed. I would get one anyway, it would be just my luck to get an LTA officer who didn't get the email.

Normally if I lose one I lose the lot, car and bike licence, debit card, store cards, 200 baht slush money etc, I do the police report and take copies of all the documents as the bank needs a copy. Touch wood, it has been about 4 years since the last time, but at 76 it will happen again sometime.
