The Phuket Tourist Police has issued a warning about rental vehicles without a proper driving license.
The warning states, “The owner or driver of a motor vehicle who lets anyone without a proper driving license to drive a vehicle will be fined not exceeding 2,000 baht.”
“The driver (Renter) without a valid driver’s license shall be imprisoned not exceeding 1 month.” The order continued.
The order is aimed at people driving motorbikes and cars without a proper Thai or international driver’s license specifically for that vehicle. The order stressed the license must specifically allow the type of vehicle driven and not be a general license, especially for motorbikes.
