Direction from immigration... exit out turning right, turn right again on the main street, pass the school and the first operationing traffic light, turn right at the next light (this one just blinks red all the time), turn left into the entrance to the Transportation Office. It's basically located two roads west of immigration. There are two building, you want the building on the right, the building on the left is for green books, registration, tax, etc.
- Passport: copies can be done there they will know which pages (info page, stamp, visa, departure form) you need twice the copies if you want motorbike and car, sign all copies
-Medical Certificate: price ranges from 50 to 100 baht per certificate, can be obtain at all hospitals and some clinics, you need two if you want motorbike and car
-Home/International driver's license: this is optional but exempts you from the tests, i had both car and bike licenses so I didn't take and exam or driving test
-Letter of Residence: obtained at immigration for 100 baht, possibly free if you come with thai gf, need to show rent contract
-Money: for the motorbike test if you don't bring one with you ,you can rent a 20 year old dream bike for 20 baht. The license itself costs ~100 baht. the going bribe rate is around 6,000 baht if you want to expedite the process and not take any tests
There are some vision and reaction tests that everyone takes. Show up before the doors open at 8:30am. Some room have no A/C prepare so prepare to get sweaty. Given that it's a government building it's suggested you wear pants and a clean shirt.
