2500 Bath under the table and done. Of course you must talk the right person. Smart people can stay in Thailand. Stupid people, go home!

2500 ---you got ripped. Its was 800 for me for 2 licenses and you out in 20 minutes,-- that was the deal. 20 minutes later I was done. Mind you that was 15 years ago.

You cant pass --they make it that way--the translation is appalling --you can't answer a question you cant understand.

When I mentioned this she said " all falang say this" So 800 baht got the same exam with little pencil marks on the correct answers and this time it went easy.

Is that cheating?

You don't offer a big enough bribe.

Not kidding either. I know of three Thais who 'passed' their test this way.

Why do they pretend that cheating is a problem in this country ? They all do it !!!

So, you know all the Thais, good for you.. NONE of my Thai friends even attempted to cheat on the Driving/Riding exams, think you hang around the 'wrong people'.

Of course, you must know very well all your "friends", they also never paid the police instead of going to the police station ! 100% sure !

And this country is also not known as the land of cheat... you must know the country and its people very well !

The only thing that I am sure about is that all this big mouth farangs who know nothing and speak about what they don't know really upset me !

If you have ever taken the Thai written/electronic test, you would know how difficult it is to pass (English version). There are questions with no right answers, there are questions with two answers that could be correct, there are questions where the answer is correct for one question but incorrect for another, and questions that make absolutely no sense at all. There are also questions that have incorrect "right" answers according to the handbook that can be had for 50 baht (all in Thai though).

When brought to the attention of the proctor and the instructor, they both just walked away saying nothing.

I, too, had to take the computerized version THREE times, and was totally perplexed until I figured out that the answer keys weren't properly de-bounced, and pressing the answer for a given question randomly entered the same answer for the subsequent one or two questions (which was, of course, wrong). I then noticed that it had skipped questions, and navigated back to correct the answers, and passed easily. This was for my five-year license. I had taken the written test for the one-year (passed first time), but let it lapse, so had to do the 'new' computerized one.

Check your answers, and the sequence of questions before you submit the test.

Funny story But some places here it is impossible to pass the Test. They will not let you pass no matter what unless you pay for "Extra help" whistling.gif

Frankly spoken, I was impressed about the perfectly organised exam and test for the motorbike driving license in Phuket. In just one day: all tests finished and correctly carried out. No hanky panky. Even Europe has to learn from this where exams cannot be made without having finished first a series of expensive practice lessons. I congratulated the Land Transport Department's relevant section! When it's good, we have to tell it also! thumbsup.gif

Didnt know you could take a drivers license test as a foreigner . without a work permnit smile.png If there is a way please let me know ?

Workpermit is not required.

Your ambassey can give you dokumentation about your address in Thailand instead

Go to your local immigration office for a letter of residency - no need to go to BKK embassy

From a strictly legal point-of-view: if you're planning to be in Thailand (btw: this rule applies to most countries !) for more than six (6) months, then you can use your home-countries license during those first 6 months (classed as a "Tourist"); however, at 1 second past midnight on the stroke of 6 months, you are required to have a license of the country you're in. The huge and "hidden" problem is that IF you have an accident and you are NOT in possession of this Thai license (after 6 months); then you are automatically EXCLUDED from any insurance cover you may have purchased ! ! ! Don't think I have to explain what disastrous consequences this could have on your life . . . . . .

The test was a joke! I got my car licence the day applied because I had my UK licence with me but I had omitted the bike option went i went from paper to the new plastic licence. So I had to take the test. The day of the test I had to drive on my bike alone about 6km to the center. I had to look at a road-sign book for about 30 mins. The test was multiple choice and the questions were in quite bad broken slightly misleading english. I made one mistake on the test, I then had to show my ability to start my bike and do alittle drive around with a instructor seeming to be more interested in what was for lunch and Passed! The hardest part was the test which if you use commen sense it is easy. failing once is acceptable, more than once then you should be not allowed to go on the road unless you are a passenger.

Indeed, it happens... Thes buttons are sometimes failing and the result is "wrong answer". The complexity of the questions is identical to the theory exam in European countries... sometimes all the anwers are correct but only one is more correct than the others. That's how they catch you for paying a re-exam!
