  1. I want to bring my Australian car into Thailand for an extended holiday. It will arrive by ship.
    How long can I use my car in Thailand and what do I have to do in regards to Insurance, Fees etc. Chinese can bring their cars across the border and now only need 3rd Party Insurance.
    Please email me all the information I need.
    Thank You Very Much
    Gary Morris.

  2. Hi Gary, as far as I know you can only bring a car across the border for 30 days or less. More than that it becomes importing a car, and that’s when the trouble begins.

    1. I read reports saying that now foreign vehicle needs to apply for permit when they enter into Thailand? This new regulation starts on 28 June 2016. You can only drive in the province where you enter Thailand. Is that true?

  3. Yes I read about this new regulation, I’m not sure if it is enforced but it’s better to contact the Land Transport Office, maybe via the help of a Thai travel agency, at least 2 weeks before your trip. I think you can drive in all provinces but not more than 30 days (and, so I’ve read, no more than 60 days per year).

  4. There was a an accident in Thailand and we have a picture of the car which includes the license plate. How can we get the car owner information from the Land Transport Office?
    Thank you for any help!

  5. Hello,
    I’m missing some information about the opening hours of the offices. Are they open on Saturdays, or from Monday to Friday?

  6. Hello,

    I tried to check on google maps the way to go to Bangkok Area 1
    9/99 Bangkunthian Chaithalay Road, Kwang Thakarm, Bangkhunthien district, Bangkok 10150, but this address is unknown (?)
    So is there anybody to explain how to go from Talat Phlu BTS ?

    Thank you for helping !

  7. Hi, I also tried to check on google maps the way to go to Bangkok Area 4 but couldn’t find it. Could you please help me to find it out?

  8. Hi! Bangkok Area 3 is still working? Find nothing similar on Google maps(
    Do you know smth about office on Koh Chang? Does it exist?)

    1. Hi Alice, it’s still there on my GG map (near Sukhumvit 99). For Koh Chang you have to go to Trat (look for “land transport department office Trat” in GG maps).

  9. FYI. Mae Taeng office number has changed.

    053-47-1415 number has been canceled, and replaced by 053-10-4119 (DLT website).
    They seem very busy though, and I have yet to go through successfully.

  10. I am planning to spend two nights on the Thai side of the Border
    – Mae Sot- arriving from Myanmar and returning to Myanmar on Myanmar registered bike with International and Myanmar MC License…
    Anybody who can advise what registration is required from Thailand for me to bring in Myanmar Bike to Thailand over land?

  11. Hi, We plan to drive for our Phuket trip. Can the Malaysia & Singapore licensed driver drive in Thailand?

  12. Hello,
    Do I need to go to the Land Transport Office where I live to get my license? Or can I go to any office in Thailand? I work M-F and I want to travel during my upcoming vacation so I am wondering if I can get my license in another city that I am visiting.

  13. Hello

    As there is mentioned that Asean countries do not require permit for foreign vehicle, can anybody tell me that which countries are part of it.

  14. I would like to take my thai registered car in my name to southern Laos for a few days holidays, is there a land transport office in Ubon where I can get my International Transport Permit renewed or should I do it in Korat?

  15. I bought my car in Bangkok 8 years ago but I moved to Prachuapkhirikhan 7 years ago.
    I need to replace my front licence plate which has been damaged by a truck.
    My local Land Transport Office told me they could not issue a new plate because the car was bought in Bangkok and I do need to go to Bangkok to get a new front licence plate.
    Can I order the new plate and have it sent to my home address?

  16. I stay in Pathum thani and bought a car with deposit monthly to bank. The car has a car number license plate from bangkok. I heard that if foreigner own the car, the car license must follow foreigner ‘s home province, that mean when i completely paid the car, i cannot keep this car number license plate from bangkok? how to keep my car number license plate?
