I have a Thai Motorcycle Drivers' License (ASEAN). Will I be able to use this in Vietnam to rent and ride a motorbike, or do I still need to do something else? Thanks for the reply.
When my group rode in Vietnam we had Thai, Malaysian, Australian and USA licenses. Customs at the border photocopied the documents and let us into the country. What I am trying to say, you should have no problems but having IDP just in case is good idea. You see, if you get involved in accident there is a possibility of insurance being void in case you don't have and IDP. If your Thai license is of 5 years validity you can apply for IDP.
