5 year driving license renewal

In Thailand, a first driving license is issued for twelve months, and subsequent licenses are valid for maximum 5 years. Documents required for the renewal of the 5 year Thai driving license:

You should make sure that the renewal request falls as close as possible to the end date of the old license, as the officials of the driving license office are often 'reluctant' to process late renewals.

When renewing your 5 year driving license you will have to watch a video about the dangers of traffic. Even the color and reaction tests must be repeated so that the extension for another 5 years must be made in the Public Roads Administration in Non Sung.

Ronald, thanks very much for your input to our site. The reason that we didn't incorporate your information into our text is that we weren't sure (and still aren't) whether this applies to Udon as it does to Bangkok. As I'm sure you know government offices in different areas sometimes apply different rules! We'll leave your information in the comments section for now, if you don't mind, so that people can read it.
