    Last time we went i still had the old UK paper driving licence, and obviously the International Certificate from the post office.
    Now i have the two part UK licence. Do i need to take the paper counterpart with me?

    Cheers Dave

    Personally, I've never bothered with the paper bit just had the plastic card and only because it's in my wallet ie not a conscious effort to bring it. If you're renting a car from a major national (Budget/Avis) they like to see some form of license but the International is legal so why risk losing the original paper bit?

    why risk losing the original paper bit?
    Why risk anything in LOS and yes only tea money for most minor things driving but I have seen a Farang carted away for only having a copy passport on him for ID and no chance of getting to the hotel to get the original so I do everything legit (or as far as I am aware I do) although it helps to have a Thai with you (wife in my case)and in her words "was 1000THB darling but now 300 as married to me" ie a Thai.

    Motto do everything correct IMHO but as they say "up to you".

    slightly of toplc but applicable here
    sister in law took mum to the airport this afternoon (thai evening time) in her new car (1 week old) for her 00.45 dep to london. she was stopped by the police because she has a red No plate with her reg on it, some thing that all new vehicles get issued with and later changed.
    however the police said that she was not allowed to drive on the red plate after daylight and was going to issue a 2000 baht ticket. after some cross words of denial and some tears from mum this was reduced to 200 baht and no paperwork, and its my fault for booking the ticket at that dep time
