Legal Considerations For My Girlfriend To Learn To Drive A Car

Recommended Posts

If I didn't already have a car, I wouldn't buy one in Bangkok. Not only is the traffic horrendous, but when you get where you're going, there's either nowhere to park or some place that charges 100 baht/ hour. A car is fine in the countryside, but in the cities go by taxi, BTS or MTS.

Sell it then I have been "Car Free" since 2008 and don't miss it one bit, if I really "need" a vehicle just pick up the phone to Avis or such and rent one, easy peasy and cheep as chips

It's good for making grocery runs and the like. I'm on the edge of Bangkok, where it's still possible to drive. I won't drive downtown though. That's just plain masochism. Nice to have for trips upcountry too.

Grocery Runs .... that's the wife's department hehe.

 

I have a Central Food Hall and a Big C both within 5 Minutes stroll from home so quite lucky in that respect (or maybe purchased in the correct location). As for trips up country, as I said, on the rare occasions I need a vehicle I find it easier to just rent

Try being a passenger in Nam for 4 years ..... Grey .... More like Bald.

 

 

P.S.

 

Flash when did you learn to use the correct spelling of Grey?

Hang over from my days in publishing in Thailand. British English is the standard.

 

The American spelling seems to have creeped in around the end of WWI. I've noticed that documents in the early 1900s still used grey, but by around 1920, gray had become more common. Aluminium became aluminum around the same time. :dunno:
