Motorbikes in Thailand. Expect the Unexpected!
My advice to potential car drivers, is to watch the traffic for a day or more before getting behind the drivers wheel. Experienced motorbike riders should do the same. Thailand in general, especially holiday destinations, such as Koh Samui, are definitely not the places to learn how to ride a motorbike!
- A current 1 or 5 year Thai or International drivers licence is required. More information is available at the Thailand Department of Land Transport.
- Helmets must be worn
- Drive slowly, you are on holiday
- Do not get road rage – you will lose
- Watch everyone and everything, there is always a surprise!
- “We do it that way back home”, does not mean the same applies in Thailand
- The fault in any accident will be yours, talking does not fix it, money will
- Expect the Unexpected!
