Pattaya police get tough on licenses: Fines for tourists AND rental companies AND confiscation of vehicle… (Ouch)..

Pattaya One News reports that Pattaya police have said that from now on if “tourists” are driving rental vehicles without licenses they will be fined up to 1000 baht. The fine for Thais could not be confirmed, although it’s known to be considerably less. But in a decisive new move the vehicle will also be confiscated. The rental company must then go and pick it up and pay a fine of up to 2,000 baht. Pol Maj Arut Saphanon said there were no if’s and but’s in the future – it starts now. Tourists must now have an international license, their passport and home country driving license when renting a vehicle in Pattaya. They must carry their documents with them to show to the police if stopped. No license and the vehicle will be taken away on the spot. People on temporary stay in the kingdom can take their home country license and a certified copy of that from their embassy or consulate in Thailand to the Department of Land Transport to get a Thai license, said the report.
