Thailand’s motorcycle taxi drivers have until November 30 to register, or risk facing legal action, said the Land Transport Department, according to a Bangkok Post report.
Drivers must register by that date in order to provide the service legally, said department deputy chief Asdsathai Rattanadilok na Phuket.
They can register at the department’s offices, and also check approved name lists. Once registered, they will obtain yellow licence plates, he said.
Passengers should look for the yellow plates, and only choose drivers who have them, he added.
Drivers must also undergo training in traffic regulations and driving conduct, and pass criminal record checks.
Motorcycle taxis are a common form of public transportation in Bangkok, as well as most other cities, towns and villages in Thailand, especially for short trips. Image/bangkokmotorcycletaxi.blogspot.com/posted by Nam Prik
