People can now renew their expired driver’s licence without having to pre-register online, the Department of Land Transport (DLT) announced on Tuesday.
The department said the licence renewal service will be available for walk-in candidates at all branches of DLT nationwide. The online pre-registration requirement, which had been implemented to prevent crowding at DLC offices during the Covid-19 pandemic, has been scrapped due to the improving situation as seen in a significant decline in confirmed cases as well as the severity of the infection.
Besides renewal of licence for personal vehicle, other walk-in services available at DLT offices include:
— Changing licence type from two years to five years (for licence that expired less than one year ago)
— Applying for international driving licence
— Applying for licence replacement in case of loss, damage or change of details
— Applying for driving certificate in Thai or English
— Applying for or renewal of public vehicle licence
To renew a licence, the candidate must first pass the e-learning course provided via the website www.dlt-elearning.com.
The department advised walk-in candidates to bring along these documents: ID card, current driver's licence, certificate of online class graduation, and medical certificate.
The DLT added that it would prioritise candidates who pre-register via the DLT Smart Queue mobile application.
Walk-in candidates who do not receive the service before the office closes on that day, will be issued a queue card for another day.
