This article is for all the tourists who are planning to go to Thailand or are already there. Have you been suggested that you get a Thai motorbike license so that you can easily rent a scooter and drive without any trouble? Now we know that getting a driving license of another country would sound exciting but the first thing that you need to ask yourself is whether you really need that license? Getting a Thai license is not that hard and it is not even that expensive but that does not mean that every tourist should get it. If you are going to Thailand for only a holiday or a very short trip then you do not need a Thai license, you can rent motorbikes and cars to commute though we would really recommend that you go for scooters and motorbikes.
You can easily do a motorcycle rental in Phuket or any other city if you have your passport and your country’s valid driving license, though some companies also require that you get a health insurance. The only people who should apply and get a Thai driving license are the people who are planning to stay in Thailand for a long time. Even if you are a foreigner, you can get a Thai driving license without any trouble. The driving license would only benefit you if you are planning to stay for some time so that you can commute very easily and would not need to spend your money on tuk tuks or buses.
The great thing about obtaining the license is that you would be able to rent any bike that you want without having to be scrutinized. Another benefit is that if you do get pulled over by the local police, they would easily let you go once they see your Thai license.
