Thailand land transport offices reopen using “DLT Smart Queue”


Mr Chirute said services requiring in-person training will continue to be suspended, while all visitors of DLT agents will need to make an appointment in advance using the DLT Smart Queue app, in order avoid congestion on sites.

Following the easing of lockdown measures in Bangkok and other provinces hard hit by the pandemic, the Ministry of Land Transport has reopened its offices providing public services and driving license applications, with some of the services being put online to avoid overcrowding.

The Land Transport Department (DLT) has authorized the reopening of all its offices for services related to the provision of driver’s licenses and payment of taxes, following the easing of lockdown measures.

DLT Director General Chirute Visalachitra said services requiring in-person training will continue to be suspended, while all visitors to DLT agents will need to make an appointment in advance using the DLT Smart Queue application, in order to avoid congestion on the premises.

With the suspension of in-person training sessions, applicants for a new driver’s license and license renewal can instead complete the required training online at www.dlt-elearning.com.


Meanwhile, other services related to the payment of licenses and taxes have now fully resumed their activities. The deadlines for paying taxes and fees have been extended until December 31, before which time vehicle owners will not be subject to any late payment penalties.

Taxi owners are also spared from the vehicle inspection of the third, fourth or sixth month of paying taxes on their vehicles until December 31 as well. However, taxi owners who wish to apply for a license to extend the life of their vehicle from 9 to 12 years, must still have their vehicles inspected if necessary. (NNT)
