Thailand Driving License

If you wish to drive in Thailand you better have Thai Driving License even though international driving license are accepted. However, several insurance company don’t fully cover you if you are not holding a valid Thai Driving License. On the other hand, Thai Driving License may sometimes also can be used as Identification Card for check in Hotels, Flying Domestic and the fact that Expats cannot carry their passports at all times, a valid Thai Driving License is slightly more relevant.

If you have a valid driving license from your home country than getting a Thai driving License is fast and easy to get. If your valid license isn’t in English Language, it has to be legalized by your Embassy in Bangkok. We will then translate it in English and verify the translation by the relevant Authority in Thailand.

The documents required are as follows:


Medical Certificate (obtained in one of the Clinics or Hospitals)


Residence Certificate or Work Permit (Either one will do)




Valid Driving License (from Home Country/Other)

45 days Exempt visa stamp is no longer offered which was implemented on October 1st last year 2022 as an effort to help stimulate the Thai Tourism Industry. All the countries that eligible for Exempt Visa stamp will now get only 30 days upon arrival.

For those who want to stay longer for tourism purpose, travelers can also apply for a 60 days Tourist Visa head of time, which is of course, more costly and requires uploading a variety of documents as most embassies have moved to the E-Visa application system.

Either way, the Exempt Visa stamp for 30 days and Tourist Visa for 60 days can extend their stay for another 30 days at the cost of 1900 THB at a local Thai Immigration in Thailand. However, some nationalities may receive extension not more than 7 days on a Tourist Visa (if not eligible for Exempt Visa stamp)
