You should bring an International Driving Licence with you on your holiday. Your home country licence is also acceptable in Thailand, but if you want to ride a motorcycle, you must have the relevant motorcycle categories on your licence. IDL’s can usually be obtained for a small charge from your local motoring organisations (such as the AAA in USA & Australia, AA & RAC in the UK etc.)
The law requires a crash helmet to be worn, despite the number of Thais you may see riding around without one, and we provide a selection, free of charge, when you hire a scooter. The Police do enforce this law and often set up random roadside checks. As a foreigner you stand a much greater chance of being stopped and fined so be sure to wear a helmet.
DO NOT drink and drive! Over the past year the Police have been focusing on breathalysing riders and the penalties may include a night or more in the cells and a 20,0000+ Baht fine.
