Does anyone know if the Pattaya driving license office accepts the Yellow housebook as proof of address?

 

ie no requirement to obtain a certificate of residence from immigration

Had my driving licenses for about 11 years (1+5+5), have to renew them after couple of months when get back to Thailand. Problem is that these days I travel with tourist visa. Does that mean that by the rules get only 2 years licenses this time?

Unless you are lucky yes - but could also depend on the specific DLT centre.

Previous reports on TV said that the Pattaya DLT specifically do not accept the Yellow house book - but maybe someone with recent experience can confirm or deny?

Good report thanks but one question - You used to be able to get away with one original and one copy - do they definitely need 2 originals or is that just what you gave them? 

Renewed my bike and car license just recently, arrived with 2 original cert. of residence from jom. Imm, lady said only need 1,handed 1 back to me, tit so I guess Rafferty rules apply.

Had received different feedback from friends. So I rather paid an extra one and had all in order. Sorry, can't answer that reliably. Yes, I just gave them 2. Regards. MS>

How much per "residence certificate" are Jomtien charging these days ?

I understand about the birthday rule, but if I go to the DLT a week after my 5year has expired, doesn't that mean I've been driving without a valid license, and doesn't that mean my insurance wasn't covering me?

I think a second half morning or early afternoon is less crowded. Bring some water and all is over in a few hours. Really friendly and impressed how they are able to process so many people

so fast, with just a few staff. Good night. MS>

I’d imagine there’s a grace period.

Is there a way to save threads or posts for future reference through the thaivisa interface somehow? I sometimes see threads then when i need them and search i can't find them.

First of all, I don't know how DLT staff keep up the chatter and smiles during the daily invasions by hundreds of applicants, but they deserve a great big WAI and a thousand thanks for keeping the process moving and getting the job well done.  This is in an office that's woefully short of space and ill-maintained, probably serving three-four times more than capacity. 

 

Arrived a bit after 07:00 and checked in at 07:06, ticket No. 002, Desk 11. Was renewing my 5-year licence about 3 months late. Walked out with my new 5-year licence at 11:00. No medical paper required -- some were asking -- if you are getting another 5-year card. Cost 305 baht.

 

Tip: I booked a Grab taxi (private car) at about 06:30. Cost 330 baht from around Big C Extra to Chonburi Land Transport. Booked a return. Cost 410 due to extra distance different from my origin. Worked really well. The destination, as above, showed up on the Grab app map in English.

Was this Chonburi city or the DLT next to Regents School?
