THAI CAR DRIVER'S LICENSE
3/. Stage 3.This next stage is parking the vehicle. Again do not proceed to insert your card until the stage 3 is well claer of a previous car. Go slow indicate you intend to move into this park. The best idea is to drive along side the red indicatior pole with your back of the car parallell with the corner pole. Not too far out.
Then back into the park. Once your front wheels are beside this pole turn opposite lock slowly and move slowly back into the park. With manual trans you can go back and forth in this area of the park 7 times. Make sure you straighten the car parallel with the gutter and front wheel straight then stop and wait for the instructor to tell you to move. If you hit the poles you fail ot if you hit the gutter you fail. You then drive out and stop beside the posts & wait until the traffic light shines green [ pass] or red [fail]. Then you can drive the car back to the parking area.
Note the bright red pole is our indicator pole. The traffic light indicator pole on the left. There are road sensors that run from this pole back. You must park the car inside the green section. Drive slow and remember its common sense.
If you fail you need to rebook to come back and do the test again which is in the morning Monday, Wed & Friday so make sure you book a spot before you leave. No charge and you are tested only on what you failed.
Once you pass then uplift your papers, return the card and Number card and head to the 2nd floor to the info counter for a number. You then sit and wait until your number shows up then go to the counter and pay 505baht for the license showing your passport as well.Pay for your license; get your photo at the back kiosk behind the counter uplifting another number sit and wait your turn then the kiosk will take picture and issue you the new car license. You can buy a plastic cover for 10 baht off the kiosk.
