Ukrainian Nabbed Taking Driver’S Exam For Friend

Recommended Posts

How the hell do you fail a Thai Driving test?

A very good Q. I know someone who has a life-time Thai drivers license and she never took a test! The police just gave to her when she applied. Mind this was a few years ago.

And she would never have been guilty of 'putting out' for the coppers would she.

you cant fix stupid.

if you already have a valid license from another country then the test consists of a few simple physical tests (like pressing down on the gas and then slamming the brake).

so many more thoughts, but i dont want to go off on a tangent.

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 experienced the same problems with the questions and answers. I was about 3 questions short of a pass and the machine gave the correct answers that I memorised. Then I was put on a different machine a few minutes later where the questions and answers were clearer and I passed.

What I did fail on is lining up the vertical bars. But I passed anyway LOL.

Anyone unable to pass the Thai driving test REALLY does not belong on the road!

If this had worked, the Russian would have a license with his friend picture on it, how did they think that was going to work?

Absolutely.....clearly if you are stupid enough to fail a Thai driving test, you are stupid enough to dream up a scheme like this.

I cant understand how the examiner mistook the identities. He thought that she looked like him?

Its the passport thats the real problem,-- look at the policemens faces they are not bothered.

but if you have to take the question portion on the computer it is not simple. you do have to use your brain. it's only in English or Thai from what I can tell and between the piss poor English on it, it is possible for a non-english speaker to fail.

The eyesight testing machines look like some leftover testing equipment from Chernobyl. 555

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

Hope you also congratulate them when a retard who doesn't know how to drive but got his license will kill your whole family...

The problem is Pattaya has become an anex of Moscow. The Russians get away with just about anything 99% of the time. This was the exception...lol

Back when I did my Thai Drivers license here in the rice paddies the 30 question paper was only written in Thai no English! They had taken pity on me and let TW sit along side and translate, not a huge amount of help as she was not a driver and never has been kept on saying things like "Zig Zag" <deleted> is that? Found out later she meant overtaking!

Anyway I/We managed 20 correct answers, pass mark was 22 --- To his credit the examiner showed me some mercy and pointed to 2 answers I should ammend, no physical driving test or any other requirements.

I think the fee was 110 Baht for the first one year licence. No graft!

Did you pass it on the first try? I took me two times. I think everyone I know had to take it again at least once. My nephews took 3 times a piece. The English is hard to decipher on a lot of questions. I think this guys problem was he gave up too quickly! They let you take it until you pass I believe.

Agreed. The English is atrocious and the pictures are illustrated poorly so that taking anything in an exact meaning compared to the text is confusing at best. The test is dam_n stupid as everything you are required to answer correctly is never demonstrated in real time driving conditions. Don't even get me going on the driving test and what I saw with my own eyes while watching the Thais ahead of me in the queue. Pathetic drivers all! This is simply a cottage industry to collect money and turn a very small percentage of the Thai population loose on the roads with licenses to terrorize, maim, damage and kill. The rest don't bother with this (sans the underage terrors) because they are not going to be needing this form of ID to get a loan so they can go further into debt.
