Dunno, but I would have thought you complete the 2 year 'provisional one first, after you get a 5 year it can be done a bit early.

Better to wait until the licence expires. With renewal you get until your next birthday plus 2 or five years depending on your type of visa. Multi entry non immigrant o visa should give five years. Best to have it done in Chon Buri, last time I renewed I did it in Surat Thani province, that gave all kinds of hassle coz they have little experience there with foreign applicants.

Good luck.

3 months prior in some DLTs.  Best just to ask, as they vary.

In others it was up to 6 month, if I remember that right.

But since I started (2014) to renew in the month after, which gets you 6 years, I have no update about that any longer.

I got my expired (1 week) driving licences recently on Ko Samui renewed. They give you exact 2 years fom the date you apply if you are on a tourist visa. I can not confirm many hassels during the process. Before you need a medical certificate from a doctor (100thb)  a certificate of residence from the immigration and pass photo for it (500 thb +100 thb 4 photos), and some copies of the documents and passport with the actual visa page which can be done at a shop outside of the LTO ( 40 thb).

Being there in the morning helps. I had to watch a 60 min stupid video online on my phone where they ask you 3 questions before the video, 3 during the video and 3 at the end. Pretty simple to answer...and you will get your test passing shown in the app which you need to show at the desk. Than the usual reaction and colour blind test upstairs and waiting downstairs again for the taking of the new picture and issuing of the driving licences.

It took me overall 3,25 hours at the land and transportation office and the fees where 330 thb for the motorbike and car licence.

Hope that helps
