Ive got no confirmation but it has been reported on another forum that there was a meeting this morning and it has been agreed that any farang using a yellow book and pink id card for renewing a licence, instead of going to immigration and forking out 500 baht tea money for a letter of residence, will now only get a two year renewal and not a five year renewal. Time will tell.

My licenses will expire soon. This morning I was told this at Joho traffic department office:

- If I go renew my licenses with the yellow book only, I will get new licenses valid in our province only, 5 years
- If I go with a new residence certificate, I can get new licenses valid nationwide, 5 years

So it is not a matter of time validity but of geographical validity. The rule must be less than 2 years old and being applied also at Chok Chai traffic department. Can anybody confirm?
