I am shortly moving to Hua Hin and would like to know if I need to take Thai driving test and if so is this possible in Hua Hin itself or nearby ?

Some basic questions such as can you drive? do you already have a licence? what country are you from etc need to be answered before anybody can answer that question.

There are test centres in Pranburi and Cha-Am.

You don't need to retake your test....Just convert your UK DL to a Thai one. There's a thread on here if you do a search....can take less than 15 mins if you chose the right centre and time.
Now semi retired 60:40 Thailand: UK ( seems to be working well)
