Hey all, I've looked over the site and haven't seen my particular questions addressed, but if this is old ground I apologize. First: I'm an American with a U.S. license for cars - not 'cycles - and an international driver's permit, also for cars (not sure if it's the '49 or '68, but it lists Thailand as one of the legit countries). So... will my permits allow me to get a Thai driving license for cars at least? (I'll be on a non-immigrant visa, which I know never used to be acceptable, but I've heard that the rules have changed recently). Assuming that I have to get a Thai 'cycle license, can anyone reccommend a school or place for lessons? I don't think I really need the practice (plenty of scooter riding in my current locale, Japan, and I was a snowmobile guide in the states) but then again, better safe than... If I get a Thai 'cycle license, will I need to bring a translator? Is the written test available in English? Could someone give me an idea of logistics? Finally, are there lower-powered bikes or scooters that I could use for riding around town (Chiang Mai) without a license? Thanks for taking the time to help out a budding rider, and again if I'm making old queries I apologize.
