Thai Driving License for Thai national

0 votes


I'm a dual citizen of France and Thailand. I've never had a driving licence before. I hold a Thai birth certificate and a Thai passport - no Thai ID card and no taabien baan registration.

I entered Thailand with my Thai passport, so no visa to produce.

Do you know whether a Thai passport only is enough to obtain a driving license here? I couldn't find any information in English online for my situation.

Thanks a lot for your help and advice!

Hi Weeliam,

My wife was in similar shoes when we moved here. She had to get her Thai ID card from the local municipal office first. I'd suggest getting that done. I also believe you need your name in someone's blue book (house book). So I'd handle those to things first.
