You need proof of address/residence .... Letter from Immigration stating your address or a yellow house book.
I took my house book, passport and copies of everything I've had for ID here in Thailand.
All they wanted was .....
Your current license/licences
Copy/copies of my passport (1 copy for every license you want)
Copy/copies of my house book or proof of residence from Immigration.
No medical certificates!

I did an upgrade from a 5yr to another 5yr.
Things might be a tad different if upgrading to a 5yr from a "Temporary" (your 1st license)....... I don't know!
It cost me ฿960 to extend both car and motorcycle licences for another 5yrs.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, I went today at 1100, not knowing exactly what I needed. What is needed is yellow book or Certificate of Residence. Yes passport, 2 copies for me also, old DLs. Luckily Immigration here is very good and got everything done on their end very quickly, ok nobody there and almost lunch time. Back to AEK, sit, wait, give paper work, sit through, thank you former English Marine kindred soul for helping keep me awake, movie. Pay the same as you posted, get pictures, DLs and outa' there. 3 damn hours plus the trip to Immigration. 1,000 bht. for Certificate of Residence+100 bht. for pics at Immigration. This was my 2nd 5 yr. Yea, I needed that b-day beer afterward.

1,000 baht for a residence letter from immigration? This is the highest I remember hearing of at Udon Immigration.

If you have a bike & a car licence that is 2 separate letters - 500* 2=1,000.
Not bad for a 'free' service!!!

i went to AEK few days before i needed to renew my 5 year car and motorbike licence i asked the question regarding the 2 letters from immigration the lady said ask for either a car or motorbike no need for the 2 letters so off i went to immo got the 1 letter can,t remember if i asked for bike or car,didn,t matter my understanding is its a letter of residency nothing more,just another way of immigration pulling your pants down and getting extra money,anyway i turned up at AEK and handed the 1 letter in watched the video got my 2 licences and off i went,your experience might be different,TIT

I probably should have gone that route, but the dude at DL didn't seem too helpful. Anyway got it done. Maybe I can get wife to get yellow book this time, she got pissed and left last time after they wanted money under the table. The wife doesn't take that crap well at all, not from anybody. One thing I really like about her.
