Expired License and COVID


Recommended Posts

My Thai licenses expire in September and I'm not expecting to make it back to Thailand before then due to COVID.  I'm currently in the US.


Will I have any issues renewing a license that has expired once I return?  Hopefully spring of 2022.


I can not write at all in Thai and do not speak it well enough to pass a driving test (although it is getting better), so I really do not want to have to start over.

If you get back before the following Sept 2022 you can just renew your Thai DL 's.


If your 5 year Thai DL's ends up being over 1 year old you will be renewed with 2 year DL from what I recall.


If your 2 year Thai DL's run over a year old you will need your US DL and maybe a IDP as well to get another two 2 year Thai DL's.


If you don't have a US DL you will have to do the Thai DL driving tests 1 test for cars and 1 test for motorbikes.
