Phuket officials confirm new medical certificates required for driving licences

PHUKET: The Phuket Land Transportation Office (PLTO) today confirmed that all people applying for driving licences – or renewing their existing driving licences – must present the new, more comprehensive medical form when filing their applications from Mar 1.

Failure to do so will see their applications rejected, confirmed Punyanuch Chumjeen, a Public Relations official at the PLTO.

Ms Punyanuch cautioned that any applicants obtaining medical certificates in order to apply for new licences or renewing their existing licences can identify the new form as it has two parts on the one form.

“Applicants need to fill in their personal details and health information and sign the form in Part I, and doctors need to fill in the applicant’s health information and sign the form in Part II,” Ms Punyanuch explained.

“If there is only personal and health information of the applicants with the signature of the doctor, it is the old form,” she said.

“Now many hospitals use this new form already. The small medical clinics that still use the old form must use the new form from Mar 1,” she added.


“We informed all medical clinics last week that they have to use the new form. After Mar 1, the old form will be invalid,” Ms Punyanuch said.

“All type of licenses such as motorbike, car or commercial passenger vehicle driver including people who want to renew their licenses are required present the new medical form,” Ms Punyanuch noted.

Applicants can see an example of the new form from the Medical Council of Thailand website, click here.

"Filling out a new form once in 5 years is reason enough for some people to jump through the roof! Shows their state of mind.Probably a day without complaining is a wasted day for them." so glad you've had your daily whinge, it must feel good to get it off your chest.

Difficult to comprehend just how Phuket wants well heeled tourists going by the masses of cheap Charlie budget Chinese & Russians flooding the island completely overwhelming basic infrastructure, Phuket is no longer attractive to wealthy travellers.

Thailand wants foreigners alright, but just well heeled ones. We O visa slaves to immigration who have to do our own errands and won't spend 160 baht on a loaf of bread really do need to either accept it- or well hell, why not call it what it is - a callous, greedy attitude.

How do I fill in a form I can't read? Renewals did not require a medical form in the past.

Google where the International Airport is and take the first flight out if you don't like it.

Do we also need to be tested for Cyphylis, like with our work permits? Or maybe Leperousy this time? Oh wait this includes locals too, so I guess no need to test for any antiquainted illnesses.

Seriously though, these forms aren't worth the paper they're written on. It's true that Thais really do love paper-work isn't it.

Apparently the form only available in a Thai version?
