Five-year driver's license renewal experience at the main [Hang Dong Rd.] office.

   I arrived at 9 AM at Monday, July 5th to find considerably more people than I had expected and was told to return the next day at 8 AM.

   Showing up on time and after about a half hour of queuing and being herded around I reached the information desk on the upper floor. My documents and photocopies were found to be in order and duly clipped together with my old licenses... car and motorbike. Then I was asked if I had passed the online test after watching the one-hour road safety video. 

   No, I had never heard of it.

   I was given a web address and told to return when I had a screenshot on my phone confirming that I had passed the test.

   The crowded, disorganized, and stressful conditions that I had been dealing with put me in no mood for this.

   After trying unsuccessfully to login, my phone battery was low and I left for home in a dreadful state of mind.

   In familiar surroundings I finally accessed the video and after a tedious hour of watching fast-talking Thais and small English subtitles that made note taking almost impossible I did manage to pass the test.

   Armed with the screenshot of my success I returned to the license bureau in the afternoon to find very few people and the remaining steps toward getting my licenses went well and were completed in a little over an hour and I was out of there and driving legally again.

   End of experience.

Does the online video and test apply to all applicants or is it related to age?

In other words, is it only for old people?

I don't know. I didn't hear or read anything to that effect.

   The video is in both Thai and English but I found it a deplorable waste of time.

   Beginning with a dialogue in Thai [with small English subtitles] between a middle-aged driving instructor and a young "Miss Manao" at the wheel, it could have come straight out of a Thai soap opera.

   That was followed by short vids from the EU and one from Canada that were pure blood porn chosen for their shock value.

   All in all, it was an hour that could have easily been better spent, but I'm glad that I eventually got my licenses in the end.

There was a staff member who tested positive there so they closed the building for 10 days I think for cleaning.

 

It's open again now, went on Friday to find out that you now need to do an online test to pass.

 

Plus medical certificate,  and cert of residency...none of this was needed 5 years ago.

 

Just had a video to watch and a colour blind test...

So much change!!

 

Anyone else taken the online test recently?
