According to a report in Thaivisa The Department of Land Transport DLT, has announced the start of a new process for driving tests in Thailand.
The new test will become affective nationwide from June 1st. The move has come about in response to urgent calls for Thailand to improve its appalling road safety record.
Learner drivers will have to go through a comprehensive driving curriculum that will also include intense lectures and a written examination on driving theory consisting of 50 questions, 90% of which drivers will have to answer correctly to pass their test. Currently the pass mark is 75%.
The new tests will be mandatory for all new drivers in Thailand. Any driver who wishes to renew their 5 year license will also have to attend a one hour refresher lecture to bring them up to speed with the new curriculum.
The Department of Land Transport believes these new measures will bring Thailand up to international standards in terms of driving and make drivers pay more attention when they are on the roads to reduce the amount of road accidents.
