Then it might be they have the same condition in both places now. If I were you I would bring the letter.

I did my last renewal at the end of June and didn’t need the address letter then.
Another guy (while I was checking my new paper) needed it, but I didn’t quite understand why.

Perhaps best to have the letter ready, but only hand it over when asked.

Ned, it would be great if you could give us a heads up after you have done your renewal.

Last year i renewed my car drivers license at Aeon2,i had a letter from the Sangat,but was told i dont need it if i didnt change address.

I heard last week that they changed the rules AGAIN,and you do need the Sangat letter,even if your address hasnt changed.Can anyone confirm if this is the new rule?

Last week at Aeon 2 I renewed my Cambo license that had expired in July. No residency letter or rental contract required.
You do need your current home country license, previously issued cambo license, and passport.
If you change your address, you need another residency letter.

Renewed my licence today, at Aeon2 All was quite straight forward, especially as I introduced a complication myself.

My old Khmer drivers licence expired about a month. At the time there was no opportunity to get it renewed.
The licence was originally issued with my UK passport and UK drivers licence as proof of identity, etc.

This year, I renewed using the same UK licence, but my current visa (ordinary, issued at the airport last week) is in my Irish passport. After about 10 minutes of discussion behind the scenes, they processed the renewal.

For those doing this as a first effort or renewal, you might like to know-

Medical fee (eyesight, squint and look embarrassed). R10000
Photocopies both passports, both licences, current visa. R2000
Licence issue. R30000

Introduction, check documents- current own country licence, current/expired Khmer licence, passport with visa.
Sit, wait, make silly noises with freightdog junior (pays to take something along to keep one amused)
Get photocopies of required documents, pay fee
Sit, wait, make silly faces at freightdog junior
New ID Photo
Eyesight check, pay doctors fee
Sit, wait, play with junior
Licence paperwork issued, pay licence fee
Sit, wait...
Licence issued.

About an hour, all in.

I'll be there a month or 2 but won't have the proper visa to get my expired Cambodia license renewed. They won't issue on the tourist visa per my understanding.

Anybody renewed their license recently? I want to renew my license but it's (as always) unclear whether I need a residency letter from the local chief / sangkat or not.

Last year I brought one and they told me I didn't need it because it was the same address as on my current license. Appreciate any recent experiences.

You don't need it to renew. Just for the original application. You do need your license from your home country though as well as passport. Wait times are now long.
