Obtaining a Motor Cycle Licence whilst up Country


barstool

Recommended Posts

I live in Pattaya and have done for the past 4 years. I am now in my wife’s village 27k from Bueng Kan for possible 2 Months.

 

I have brought a Honda Click and then put it in my wife’s name as I would have needed a Residency Certificate to own it myself.

 

I have a Thai 5 year car licence and now want my bike licence and I want to find out if I can do it away from the Province where I live.

 

Several questions come to mind:

 

I have a passport no problem.

 

I have a 5 year Thai Car licence with my Pattaya address on it. Would this do in place of a residency certificate? Do I need a residency certificate? If so can I obtain one in Buang Kan with no rental agreement with me?

 

I imagine I would need to do a practical test. (Not fall off the bike. 555)

 

Would I need to do a theory test?

 

I know I would need a medical certificate.

 

I know that it would be easier to wait until I get back to Pattaya. When I do go back the bike will most likely stay in the village and I would rather do the test on a bike I am getting use to. I have little to no bike riding experience in the past.

 

It would be great from people who have had this same experience.

 

All replies welcome of course.

i had to do a theory test for a bike even though I had a Thai car licence. The practical was driving around a 300M course.

I have just renewed my licences and I needed a proof/letter or residence either from my embassy or immigration (cheaper option) to get my new licences and had to sit through an idiotic TV show about thai road laws for an hour and a half, Don't insist on the English version watch the Thai version lol

Always remember that when a Thai woman calls you darling she is speaking Thai not English!

Thks Uncle. The certificate of residency will be my greatest hurdle.

From my own experience, i have obtained a car and motorcycle licence from a different province to that which i resided in.

 

They did need a copy of my wife’s home book. My name is not in the home book. I also took a bill from truemove which was in my name.

I saw the pratical exam for motor license in Sisaket. No problem if you can drive a motorbike. But it will take 1 entire day of your time with theoretical and practical exams!

 

Maybe this can help you:
