Driving License in Thailand by Pattaya Kids

If you have lived in Thailand for any length of time you will appreciate that sometimes things can be a little bit harder and a little bit more drawn out than what we may be used to back ‘home’. I recently had to renew my 5 year driving license and I have been putting it off as long as I could until it started approaching the final few days when I actually decided that I better do something about it. It was not because I was scared or anything like that, just I knew that it was going to be something that would take a long time.

When the day arrived after I had finally decided to bite the bullet I went to the test centre bright and early and got myself in the line that a had foolishly mistaken for a queue, how very English of me! I say foolishly mistaken for a queue as when the doors opened there was a mad dash to the front whilst me a few other Johnny Foreigners politely waited. Having realised the error of our ways we joined the rugby scrum until another member of staff started organising a queue, about 10 minutes too late, but still at least the thought was there!

I finally got the opportunity to take my test to prove that I wasn’t blind and could judge distance and passed with flying colours, although to be honest I am not sure what you needed to do to fail as the girl wasn’t paying much attention and there were people there who really shouldn’t have been allowed in a car let alone drive one!

At this stage I mistakenly thought that I would be issued with my new driving license and I could go merrily on my way for another five years, no I had to watch a Thai soap opera, sorry video about how you should drive. This was a tale about Noodee, her family and a lunatic of a driver, the likes of which we see on the roads of Pattaya every day. I think it is fair to say that the story was long winded, and the same video I watched 5 years ago as sadly I must have been paying too much attention as I could remember it.

After 50 minutes of my life had been wasted I then moved into a queue to pick up my license and pay my dues and demands. I had to pay an extra THB100 to pay for having my passport number changed but I was finally free to walk away!
