You’ve seen how crazy Thai drivers are weaving in and out of traffic like a chicken with their heads cut off you’d almost think there where no Thai driving laws but in fact there is and your just as likely to get a ticket here than you are back in the west.
The biggest violation that tourists often find themselves in is for not wearing a helmet. Not wearing is not a big deal here but can be a pain in the butt. You see a fine for not wearing a helmet is typically 100-200 baht, doubling if you are carrying a passenger, riding with three passengers is not allowed either.
Getting a drivers license in Thailand is also a strange deal, similar to getting a drivers licence in the USA though if you don’t move your head to look up and down streets they will fail you. There is no three point turn or driving on freeways so it’s actually pretty easy. Motorbike license is even easier.
Little known fact is you must be 18 years old to drive a car in Thailand but you only have to be 15y/o to drive a motorbike, if you drive a motorbike without a license the fee is only 100-200 baht not much of a detterent at all.
I’ve heard of people say how corrupt Thai traffic police are asking for money here there and everywhere but it’s not as rampant as say Mexico is. Know this, when you’ve got caught for something the traffic cop is supposed to give you a ticket and you pay at the station, you don’t actually pay him. I’ve never got a ticket that i had to pay on the spot.
