The move is part of a national push by the Department of Land Transport to have people renew their licences in Bangkok and tourism provinces throughout August-September, reports state news agency NNT.

In addition to being open during regular government office hours, Land Transport offices in selected provinces, including Phuket, will be open from 4:30pm to 6pm Monday-Friday (except public holidays) and from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Saturdays.

In order to use the service, people must book an appointment through the DLT Smart Queue application (on Google Play and the App Store).

If people reschedule their appointment and book a new time through the app, the original appointment will be automatically cancelled, the NNT report noted.

They really seem to be one of the more progressive Gov't Depts and have really raised their game over the past few years. A shame Immigration can't follow their lead. Although they have improved as well, its baby steps compared to the DLT.
