Thai driving license extension after visa type change

+1 vote

Almost two years ago I made my Thai driving license and it´s going to expire this year. Does anybody know if I can extend its validity even after I changed my visa type? I don´t have work permit now. Can my driving license be extended without work permit if I have tourist or ED visa?

Hi Marek,

According to the Department of Land Transport and our article on getting a Thai driver's license, it doesn't say anything about visas being a requirement for driver's license renewal.

I'd suggest having someone who can speak Thai call the DLT to confirm.
