Watch the tedious driving license video (or not) in the comfort of your own home before going to the office to renew

^ Yes.
pro - having a card winds Giggle up (some might say that is enough reason)
con - he’ll be along soon enough spitting vitriol that usually needs two thumbs to get past

You're sorely confused.
I don't care much for the yellow book and only wind up the numbskulls who insist it means something it does not.
I've never had a problem with a pinkie you can carry around in your wallet.

I've had both for nearly a decade and both are fairly useless and certainly not worth the effort of getting.

The braindead libtards on U might suggest that forcing Thais to have an ID card is somehow rayciss! and violates their human rights. Gawd, they're insufferable, lumpen oiks.
