Does anyone have any recent experience of obtaining a IDP at Banglamung Land Transport Office (LTO)? Google throws up only confusion.

In particular:-

  1. Can I even get an IDP at Banglamung LTO? One site tells be I need to go to Chonburi.
  2. Are any forms required in English or do I need to take someone who can read Thai?
  3. What documents do I need to take e.g. Residence Certificate from Immigration?
  4. How many photos and what size etc.?
  5. Any special hassles I need to prepare for?

Thanks for any advice to avoid multiple trips to the LTO

I dont know Chonburi, but only the main DLT offices issue them. In Hua Hin you have to go to Prachuap to get one.

Did it in March.

Letter of residence from Immigration

2 x Photos

505 THB

Assume take your Thai licence, I just showed my expired IDP

They last 3 years now

Again it may depend on where you intend to drive, I have read on here a Thai licence can be used in the UK.

Yes it can legally, but the problem I had in the past was some hire car companies would not accept it without an IDP. I had to shop around. I hoped if I could easily get an IDP I could save myself some hassle.

Thanks to all those who have taken the trouble to reply.

By the rules: the basic condition is having a "5 year" (non temporary) Thai driving license.

3 years validity means that they now issue the "1968" version.

Check with your country whether it is accepted.
