How to Apply for Thai Driving License with Thailand Elite


Members with Thailand Elite’s Privilege Entry visa are eligible to apply for a 2-year Thai Driving License. Members can visit any of the Department of Land Transport offices throughout the country to submit an application and any required documents. An Elite Personal Liaison service can be provided for the document submission process at the Department of Land & Transport Chatuchak office only. (Advance reservation is required)

The following is the list of required documents:

Valid visa (Thailand Elite visa)

A valid passport (at least 6-month validity) with a signed copy of the first page, visa page, and recent entry stamp with a departure card (A former passport is required in case a current Thai driving license has a former passport number).

A residency certificate is issued by the applicant’s embassy or Immigration Bureau.

** A residency certificate issued by the applicant’s embassy needs to be stamped by an embassy and it is valid for 90 days from the issued date.

** A residency certificate, which is issued by the Immigration Bureau, the applicant needs to have a 90-day report and it is valid for 90 days from the issued date.

  • An applicant is required to bring all original documents for a Thai driving license application.
  • If a Thailand Elite member would like to apply for both car and motorcycle driving licenses, two sets of documents are needed to be arranged as the above information.
  • We require members to send all scanned documents as listed above to the CRM Section to check that all docs are well prepared and completed before booking any driving license appointment. (This is a requirement even if you are not planning to use EPL services.)

Please be informed that Thailand Elite provides the assistant service called "EPL (Elite Personal Liaison) service", but the assistant will facilitate you for obtaining or renewing your driving license at the Department of Land Transport Chatuchak office only.

Our service assistance is for the first time free of charge as a complimentary service to all members of Thailand Elite. The service fee will be charged at 2,000 THB from next time onwards.
