To add to DM's question, is it necessary to report a passport number change with the DLT? I have decided to wait until renewal time next year but it would be nice to know if I should report the change by the letter of the law.

NOTE: Like most, I use the DL for domestic flights and hotels in Thailand along with other ID needs at Kerry, post office etc.

For added info, the labour department told my wife to wait until renewal for the passport number change in the work permit system. I shall follow that logic me thinks.

I asked the exact same question at DLT KK Road, they said simple task just come with NEW Passport and current D/L they will change, sorry did not ascertain cost .
It is a Government Agency issued Card with ID details and as such is taken as correct so if any deviation, suggest change rather than wait unless you DO NOT NEED TO USE the D/L as you have mentioned .
As opposed to a Work Permit where the user ( you ) and the place you are working are fully aware of whom you are.

For those who have a "pink card" with a Thai ID number, this is probably the preferred form of identification on government documents.

It obviates the need for changes when you get a new passport.

It is the one used on my MDL, as well as my Tax ID - which I was required to get by my Oz bank for some now forgotten reason.

It's only necessary to update it if your DL is going to be used in conjunction with a yellow book, pink ID card and/or immigration letter of residence for proof of residential address for the likes of a hire purchase agreement or a car note. With their pedantic need for double proof of everything, some branches of some banks may want your DL as as part of their bank account opening melange and it it doesn't address match with everything else, the word 'Cannot' may be casually invoked.

Since the LTO will only reissue the updated DL to the same expiration date as the current one, save your time and money and change the passport number on your renewal next year.
You don't have to be afraid of everything you don't understand.

Thanks for the info gents ..

Obviously when changing address your visa and WP must be updated ithis follows on the change of our business address.

I just wasnt sure re driving license ,,,,cant say i use my DL for any other than showing police at a road check point.
As KP says seems not to.difficult may as well update the DL .. one thing i was wondering in case of an accident including a death would incorrect address on DL void the insurance stopping a claim ???
Now thinking
Adrdess on the following perhaps
Car insurance policy
The blue book.car ownership
Bank accounts
Covid vaccination book
Medical.insurances
Plus a few more fir sure

Im.guessing when getting a new passport there will be all the same updates above plus quite a few more .. im.due that joy in 2024.

Once again thanks for the replies.

There is the benefit of having a pink card and yellow book, as it can be used for most things, like bank accounts, driving licences etc. So reducing theThe number of things that need to be updated when changing your passport.

This only my opinion not based on anything but gut instinct, IF your D/L has incorrect Passport Number it could be declared illegal and that MAY interfere with any Insurance payout ,
Seeing as iT is a Government Agency form of ID, I would NOT like to test the boundaries, quicker to just change details as and when required . It is not as if most of us have nothing better to do is it !!
