To Steve Piraq no need for a letter from immigration just the copy of the yellow book
Where do you get that info from, Just this week I asked Immigration and was told it is compulsory. A copy of the book can be an old document, the letter is to confirm you still have a valid visa.
you can just take a copy of the visa and the yellow book I just did that 3 weeks ago.

:cheers: :cheers:

Is that not the purpose of presenting your passport?

As is the norm in Ting Tong Land everything is up to the discretion of the person behind the desk, that is I why I take a file with copies of all kinds so I am not told to go and make copies.

Yes, that was my thought - if you'd asked the BIB at the desk next door, you'd have probably been given a different answer also.

I did my 5 year renewal for car and motorbike today 31 July 2017 at Pranburi DLT. Arrived at 07:45 with copies of everything previously mentioned in this thread by all parties whether needed or not.
The requirements as of TODAY as a new system was implemented 30 July 2017 is as follows:
Letter from Immigration
Copy of house book
Copy of passport
Copy of passport visa page.
Copies of front and back of driving license.
One Thai form is provided at the desk, you only need to sign and give your phone number, they complete the rest.
A full set is required for each license.
Take a color blindness test.
Take a hand/eye/foot coordination test. It did not seem to matter if you passed as no one registered any results.
Watch a two hour Thai video with English subtitles.
Pay 1,060 Baht to cover two licenses, 6Baht extra if you want a plastic cover per license.
Have photo taken and new licenses issued.

Left at 2pm however there was around a two hour delay as they could not get the new system to print the licenses.

Apart from a copy of the Tabien Baan, that is no different to the procedure when I renewed my licences in January.

I don't understand the reason for a copy of the Tabien Baan as immigration will have already seen that to provide your address letter.

Oops I forgot to mention get there at 8am as by 8:15 the place is full and they have a sign up (in Thai) stating only 30 applications processed per day.

Maybe the 30 max is aimed at new licence applications which is a 2 day affair and I believe an appointment is required. Certainly wasn't that busy in January.
