So the 5k spend allows a VIP to skip  watching the 1hr long video.

Great value !!

No. It guarantees a fast track for those who want to walk in without ANY LIcence (not me case) and come out with a shiny Thai one (most of the group) big money here. No corruption...Lol

don't forget the licence starts after your birthday so wait till it expires before renewing.  doing it this way you can get almost 6 years.

Mixed group of people mate. Some had licences some didn't. Some even paid immigration 25K to get 5 year licenses on a 30 day visa free entry. Guys planning to come back and live here. They ALL got it on the day. Straight in. No messing. One English guy with His flipper girlfriend. She'd never ever sat on a bike She got a licence...Lol

I had my UK licence but didn't fancy the waiting. 5K well spent I'd say. Would I do it again after my 2 years expires? Absolutely. Hassle free. I spend that on the piss on a night or two.

Why in f**k would someone pay immigration for a license, they do not issue them.

Story is smelling more like bullshit with every post you make.

Nope. They asked immigration as they had been told cannot make 5 year licence on a 30 day visa excempt entry. They organised a Thai they know who does the driving test runs to take them to the centre and get them the five year licences. 25K Baht they paid.What they told me I have no reason to dis believe I was with them on the bus going to and coming back. I seen their passports they had no visas just 30 day visits.

Up to you what you think.
