Traffic police cannot confiscate driver’s license under a new traffic law in effect from Aug 20th

Effective 20th August, traffic police have no authority to confiscate the driving license of the driver of an automobile or motorcycle when being stopped for a traffic violation under the new Land Traffic Act B.E. 2562.

Traffic police still have the authority to issue penalty tickets on the spot to a motorist or a motorcyclist for violating traffic laws.

When the driver is not present, such as in the case of illegal parking, the ticket can be attached to the vehicle or, alternatively, sent by registered mail to the address of the driver or the car owner together with evidence of the violation. Under the new law, a driver must carry a driving license, a photo copy of the license or electronic information about the license with him or her and must produce it to a police officer on request.
