after reading all this i went to check my wife her motorbike dl...expired for almost 3 months :(
so she went to make renewal (5year to 5year at AEK), needed old dl, id card , no health certificate needed ,falang will need yellow house book or proof of residence from immigration (as our passport not contain an address),
color test, reaction test , stop test , 1 hour video , 255 baht and good for 6 years (2568), so better wait expiration of license to win a year extra as mentioned here before...
if you not go early ,the class will be full , many people now make an appointment online ...
my wife arrived first but her follow number was 18....as info... ;)

When I renewed 5yr to 5yr in Jan, I wasn't required to take a color, reaction, or stop test. I did have to view the video. AEK

To share my experience just this am:

Arrived Udon DLT 08:15. Stopped at the copy lady at bottom of stair. 3 waiting, she was not ready so took her few minutes to get sorted and start helping the first in line. Received my copies and up stairs to 1st desk. My bride was with me for translation so she spoke to the young lady when our time came (1 in front). Bride sends me down for couple more copies. This satisfies young lady at first desk. She signs, stamps 2 stack of papers (cover sheet lady provided, old license, medical certificate, copy passport, copy visa with entry stamp and yellow book) and sends to next queue.

Next queue maybe 5 or 6 in front of us waiting for the physical tests. Standard color test, brake reaction time and line up the sticks. Upon completion of these 'tests' the attendant fills in cover sheet and signs, sends us to desk number 2.

Desk number 2 makes us sit for couple minutes. Don't know why cause there is no one else there. But we sit couple minutes just the same. She calls us up, exchanges some small talk with my bride and asks for 760 baht (as I recall, need to look back at receipt to be certain at this point). I lay 1000 note counter, bride retrieves change and we are off to the photo desk.

Qwik photo and we wait few minutes for the new cards to drop out of the machine. Retrieve cards and back out to car, 08:58 when I fire up the engine.

So, about 45 minutes all in, 760 baht and I'm on my way with 2 fresh 5 1/2 year operator licenses.

Couple clarifiers:

Original license was 2 year expired 6 Oct.

New licenses expire birthday 2025.

Visa is fresh 'O' obtained in Ankara Turkey.

Entry stamp 6 Oct for 90 day stay.

Medical certificate obtained yesterday at clinic near UD Town. I waited in car with babies while bride goes in to explain what I need then she was going to wait with babies and I go in for what ever is needed of me. She comes out with certificate, all I need do is sign and we are off. I think she paid 200 baht.

Easy, painless and done for 5 1/2 years.

Hi Tiger
2 year expired 6/10/19 so when did you go to DLT please
Is DLT the one on road to Khonkaern about 30kms from UD?
My 2 year motorcycle only expires 8/11/19 so what’s earliest time I can get my 5 year ?
Are these only documents I need:
Passport with Retirement stamp etc
Current 2 Year Driving Licence
Medical certificate
Baht
Thanks

I was DLT yesterday 9 Oct.

Yes, DLT on road to KK.

Honestly, don’t know how long before expiration can renew. The advantage is wait until expire to receive expiration 5 years from next birthday.

You will need proof of address. Yellow book worked for me. Others will have to comment as to letter from immigration or letter from embassy is required for Udon. Seems it varies some from province to province.


As always YMMV

Was the Non O Visa you got in Turkey a 1 year multiple entry or a single entry.

Renewal is 3 months before and up to 1 year after with no extra test needed.

To get a 5 year licence you must eithe have a Non-O (or other 3 month/1 year) visa or an extension of stay ( the Elite visa does not qualify and only gets a 2 year licence.

You have missed the certificate of residence in your documents, a yellow book with, or without, pink card may be acceptable. A work permit if it shows your address is also OK.

If you go to AEK they have stated that you only need 1 original of the documents with copies if you are doing both license's at the same time. I don't know if the main DLT office has the same policy.
