where is the best place to get the 10Y driving license at the moment?

Whether you've got a Tico or a Lexus, a Dailim or a Harley, this is the forum to discuss transport in Cambodia. Where to buy it, how much to pay and what to do when the wheels fall off.

where is the best place to get the 10Y driving license at the moment?

i would like to get the 10Year driving license but the agency i met seemed very confused, first saying that would be easy,than they asked a document which foreigners shouldn't be able to get (still managed to get it), than when i returned they said i can only get a 2 years license later they said foreigners can only get the license for 1 year now new law(???).
Needless to say I rather get another agent or go to the relevant ministry myself. Which place would you suggest?

Go to the ministry yourself. They can tell you clearly. I was there this morning and found them quite helpful.

What I think is the case...
If you are converting a foreign license then you can only get a 1yr license. But if you do the test here then you can get a 10yr license.

YTP has a ten year license.
I'm considering doing a big bike test, I asked this morning and they told me that it costs either $20 or $25 to apply for the test (they were willing to check exact figure but I only wanted a ballpark figure).

You need to sit the test at a driving school to be eligible for the 10 year license.

Please outline the procedure and costs to do this.

1) visa type necessary
2) do you go through a driving school
3) do you need to bring your own car
4) exact costs
5) how long does the licence take to issue
6) do you need to make an appointment in advance
7) can you pay extra to avoid the tests (not what I'm looking to do, but just wondering if this is an option)

As far as I am aware the only foreigner on the forum who has been through this is YTP - he has already answered your questions on a separate thread.

Yep, noticed this already and he has been most helpful. Except for the part about not wanting to provide any contacts LOL.

Do you really have to make/bump three threads about this? I know the procedure but really doesn't motivate me to share the info when you bombard the place with your enquiry.

The user YTP has been most helpful so I don't need to know anything else. I think my reply above is self-explanatory.

We should set up a sister website Khmer(Concierge)440.com ...

To help all the clueless nOObs that struggle to leave their apartments and find anything

Maybe one day one of them might even say Thank You ...

Unlike here in Hanoi which is AMAZING. You can get a 3 year combined car and bike license delivered to your office for a fee. :!:

I know of three barang in SHV who have a 10 year licence. I'm sure there is more but it's not exactly a normal ice-breaker!

"Hi. Do you like bumming ladyboys?"
"No"
"Do you have a 10 year licence?"
"Hang on. What was the ladyboy question again?"

I got the 10 year license a few years ago. You need to sit the written test (or pay a few bucks to get it 'specially marked' which is advisable as its an asinine test), and a practical test involving parking , reversing etc.
