Need help in extending Thai Driving Licence


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've had a TDL since 2002 as I've always had my required visa & work permit. As mine has expired in July 2021 and I'm currently here on a visa exempt and on my 1st covid extension, are there possible options to get it renew?

 

I don't want to let it expire for more than 12 months and I would really like to get it renew.

 

Thank you.

Does your expired work permit have your address in it ? 
If so, you could chance it that they don’t spot the date.

 

Otherwise you can renew, you’ll need a letter of address (certificate of address) from Immigration or Affirmation of address from Embassy (depending on your nationality).

As expired less than 12 months renewing is easy, just go to your transport office, you'll only be able to get a 2 year licence as you are on a visa exempt.

 

Need residence cert, doctors cert, copy if getting 2 licences.

 

In Pattaya you have to go twice, once to register and book appointment, second go through the usual process

Does that mean I won't have to take some sort of tests? I've always done my renewals at the one in Sukhumvit, Bkk. I'll make a trip next week to see what they need as mine is a 5 year licence.

 

Will update when I have the correct info.

 

Thank you everyone for their input.

You'll do the usual tests, eyesight, reaction, depth perception
