The expression of disappointment on traffic police when they stop you at a check point and you hand them your driver's license makes the whole ordeal totally worth it. If you add on top of that the discount to the golf courses then it's an easy call.
I just had to do eye test and pic taken. No tests whatsoever. It's good for 1 year initially, then extended for 5 years. I had a license from home Canada, but don't think they cared either way?? Also, been stopped at random checks while driving at least 10 times, been asked for a license a total of zero times.

Where was this? also, did they stopped you at night?Here in Chiang Mai checkpoints during the day are for helmet/driver's license/tax and at night are for DUI/Drugs. But wouldn't be surprised if things work the completely opposite way elsewhere in the country.

I can't remember the last time I've been stopped in BKK. At least 6 years now but I'll rarely drive more than 5km and I don't live anywhere near suk/silom.
