"Big Bike" license to start next year

Recommended Posts



The Land Transport Department has announced it will introduce "big bike" driver's licenses next year for motorcycles with engine capacity of 400cc or more. 
Sanit Phromwong, director-general of the department, said the new regulation would not have retroactive effect. 


Well, this should be interesting. I wonder what the enhanced requirements are going to be.

Wonder what "the new regulation would not have retroactive effect" entails? I hope it means that current licenses remain valid, even for big bikes, as I have 4 years left on my current one. In the greater scheme of things, however, I doubt this will have much of an impact on traffic safety. Might be a nice, new source of pocket-money for the BiB, though.
