Land Transport Ministry calls on drivers to use its mobile app to pay car tax
Thailand’s Department of Land Transportation said drivers should use the department’s dedicated app to make their annual car tax payments. DLT’s Yongyut Nakdaeng says paying through the app will help reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19. Motorists will receive a receipt and their tax stamp by post within 5 days. Thai drivers can call the DLT hotline at 1584 for more information.
âMotorists can show police proof of payment generated by the app while waiting for a new tax sticker. These services are only available for vehicles exempt from screening, while the tax for vehicles requiring screening can be paid at departmental offices, post offices or related commercial banks.
Yongyut says there are also a variety of other ways for drivers to pay their road tax without having to go to departmental offices. These include services such as Counter Service and the mPAY Wallet and True Money Wallet applications. Motorists can also pay online at the website.
According to a report from Nation Thailand, most people still visit the DLT to pay their car tax. Out of 503,754 Bangkok drivers who paid car tax last month, 397,702 did so at the DLT office, of which 58,914 used drive-thru. 31,134 paid on the ministry’s website, 2,024 used the app, 904 used the automatic kiosk, 11,184 payments were made through the counter service, 1,235 motorists paid at their local post office, 621 used mPAY or True Money apps, while 36 paid through apps associated with commercial banks.
