I don't know is the honest answer:

- Internal flights, never tried
- Checking into hotels. I've had friends have their licence refused, whereas they always (often reluctantly) accepted my ID card.
- Thai entry to National Parks - always refused to acknowledge my driving licence, but have never had my ID card refused.
- Hospital, never tried
- Posting letters, never tried

I guess as we're in Thailand, it depends which official you encounter on which day.

It has worked for me for internal flights, hotels, post office, anything you would use a passport for (except international travel obviously).

It doesn't always work for things you are supposed to get the Thai price for, you may have to change your skin colour, language and culture for that.

Whenever I have needed an ID I have produced my 5year Driving License and it has been accepted. After 11 years I have still not bothered to get a Yellow Book and never had a need for it either.

I heard of an unusual requirement for a Yellow Book yesterday. A friend wants to play in the annual football tournament next month in Hua Hin. He can't enter without producing a Yellow Book.

If he's got that correct it's total lunacy. Rules gone mad. Oh sorry, TIT. :thumb:

No, that is really NOT the case.
You have to report the 90 days as everybody else.
Happy new year to you too.
