A special 191 task force announced the arrest of a serial forger called Thongchai Apiyangkoon, aged 28.

 

Thongchai was offering to make customers fake Thai ID cards for 5,000 baht, fake Thai drivers' licences for 4,000 and bogus migrant cards for 3,000 baht. 

 

The cops pounced at his room in Ramkhamhaeng in Bangkok after investigating the "Ku Do Kung" site on Facebook. 

 

They found a mountain of evidence - nearly 1,000 items in all - including 170 fake Thai ID cards, migrant cards, driving licences, Department of Land Transport stamps, fake annual tax return forms, a computer and copying equipment. 

 

And there was also a quantity of crystal meth and drug taking equipment. 

 

The cops said they investigated after Thongchai was named in 13 warrants and discovered he was mixed up in forgery and the drug trade. 

 

The suspect admitted his involvement. He said his customers were mostly young people who wanted fake ID to get into clubs.

In fact it had been made much more difficult to obtain a legal driving license in the legal way.

In Khaosan Road, opposite end to the police station, you've been able to buy fake local and international DL, international press cards and fake airline ID cards for years. Right under the nose of BIB walking around with blinkers on..

And I remember back to When.... I wasn't perfect myself..........

Think about it..........................

Set driving license standards like in central Europe. You have to pass a theoretical test, followed by practical driving. There is a minimum of driving lessons to be taken in a driving school. 

Some fail, go for some more training and pass; some never get a license. Once you pass and there is no incidence in the first two years, then you get a lifelong license. 

I'm sitting on a lifelong Swiss license for the last 42 years, yet have to show up every five years at the local DLT for a renewal. Apart from an idiotic reaction test, the rest is OK. At the end they show a video which is flatly ignored by 98% of the Thai applicants; they snooze, chat on social media or read the newspaper. Half into the video the license issuance is finished and applicants are called, name by name, to pick-up the license and roam the Kingdom's road with the same ignorance and lack of rules, regulations and skills. 

Explains the terribly high loss of life on Thai roads - could all be avoided with more stringent testing procedure and freeing up the DLT of all those sitting on real licenses, without accidents, after 10 years or so ..............

Far cheaper to bribe the regular corrupt clerk behind his counter and get a real document in Thailand 🤣

That can be done at the DLT or the office that issues Thai ID cards?  Really?

No you haven't, KSR has never offered fake Thai driving licences; that's one of the reasons that the vendors have been "allowed" to operate.

You mean they actually fail someone, thus creating the need to buy a fake one...

It was you who said that staff in the DLT offices are corrupt and will accept bribes in order to bypass the normal system, that makes you the troll, unless you can back up your assertion, which, of course, you can't!
