HOW TO APPLY AND GET A DRIVING LICENSE IN PATTAYA

 

The process for getting a Thai driving license depends on whether you already have a valid license from another country or not. If you already have one, the process is a bit easier, if you don’t, don’t worry. You’ll just need to take a test. The license is issued by any Department of Land Transport office which can be found all around Thailand.

 

THE PROCESS OF GETTING A DRIVING LICENSE

 

You’ll need a few pieces of paper, there’s a list of what you need below. Take all this along to your local office of the Department of Land Transport, you can find the address of the nearest one to you online. The process of getting a license involves: 

  • Watching some videos and so, unless you’re fluent in Thai, make sure you check to see which days they are going to be shown in English, this information should also be on the website. 
  • After you’ve watched the training and safety videos you’ll do a couple of tests, a reaction test which involves pushing a brake pedal when you see a red light and some color chart tests to see if you’re color blind and a peripheral vision test. 
  • If you already have a license that’s pretty much it. You’ll have your photograph taken and they’ll issue you with a license. 
  • If you’re taking the test, you’ll do a multiple choice test 
  • And then a practical driving test.

 HOW TO GET AN INTERNATIONAL DRIVING LICENSE IN PATTAYA

You can only get an international driving license in Thailand if you have the five year license already, in which case it’s easy. You need to take your license, your passport, your work permit or certificate of residency, and copies of each of these along with two passport photographs to your local DLT office and they’ll issue you with an international driving license.

Needing to have a driving license in order to legally drive a vehicle, whether it’s a car or a bike, is not an unusual expectation. In Thailand it’s no different. If you drive without a license, your insurance is null and void and with it having such a bad reputation for RTAs, you really don’t want that. You might have to wait in line for a while and you might find the process a bit confusing but at the end of the day, it’s really not that difficult.
