New regulations mean that people who want a driving license will no longer need to be tested at a land department center.

All applicants need to do is go to a driving school, get a certificate and they will be behind the wheel.

Head of the land transport department Sanit Pornmuang said yesterday it was all part of changes to the rules for getting licenses.

If potential drivers can show they have completed the new more stringent training they can pick up a license from any department office, reports Thairath.

Drivers now need to do five hours of training instead of the previous four.

Sanit said that 93 private driving schools nationwide are registered with his department. Potential drivers will have to go to one of these to complete the training.

But when that is done they will need to do nothing else except present the certificate from the driving school and they will get their license.

Another 48 driving schools are also being considered to be part of the scheme.
