    Thai Drivers License Checklist

    Just got my Thai driver's license. Here is the current info (December 2017) for someone who does not have a driving license in the English language. I went to the Department of Land Transport (DLT) in Ubon Ratchathani (Ring road 231).You need:1. Your passport + copy of the first sheet + copy visa and stamp date of entering Thailand. A visa is apparently not necessary. I did not even have a visa, because this time I stay less than 30 days in Thailand.2. Certificate of residence. Get this at the Tourist Police (Headquarters in Warin). Take your passport + copy, and also proof of your whereabouts, for example tabien job of your spouse + her ID card and copies.3. Medical certificate. To be collected in a clinic. In my case, four doors next to the entrance of the DLT (80 Baht).4. International driving license version 1949 + copy. Attention, Thailand does not accept version 1968.Procedure:After DLT has checked your documents on the third floor, four tests will follow:1. Recognizing red, yellow and green.2. A test in which you have to draw two rods with a cord on the same line (depth view, I suspect).3. A reaction test: you have to brake when the light on the unit turns red.4. To be able to recognize red, yellow and green on another device. If you succeed, you have to watch a two hour video containing the traffic rules. Then you get your documents back. With that you go to the second floor, you pay 205 baht, they make a passport photo and then they make your driving license. That is valid for two years.

    Thai Driving License from scratch

    The DLT only accepts an international driver's license model 1949 and NOT model 1968. Went to DLT in Ubon a few hours ago. Problem is most countries issue model 1968.

    Thai Smile Baggage

    That's why I don't fly Thai Smile anymore. I choose AirAsia (40 kg) or Thai Lion (45 kg).

    Wanted to have dinner at Tom's American on Phalochai Road tonight. Couldn't find it. Closed permanently? Then went to look for Saloon Café and Bar at Phichitrangsan Road. Couldn't find that either. Finally ended up in Me Bar Ubon. Expected more of that place ...

    Wanting to an upright freezer

    Not easy to find apparently in Thailand. I mean the one with a closed door (no glass door) with drawers as we use them in Europe and US. I only found one model: Mitsubishi, 5 drawers + 1 compartment, 144 liters, only 55 cm wide. Actually I prefer a bigger one. I already went to HomePro, Makro, Power Buy, ... Any suggestions. BTW we live in Isan (Ubon Ratchathani)
