New driving license procedure for foreigners

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

That’s always been the law.
You have to take the test and go through all the shit to get it but you have a 10 year one (unless you are over 65 then it’s yearly).
Yes, it is law that you need to take test to get license. But the question is: Do you need to attend a driving school, and Pass their test before taking the test at the Department of Public Works and transport in the far north outskirts of the city?
Yes. If your foreign licence has expired you must do both tests (practical and theory) at the ministry north of the city.

Unless you know someone, apparently.

Oh yes sorry. No idea but I doubt they will expect you to anyway.
If you contact a driving school (which you have to be introduced by) they will sort it all out without you actually having to do lessons and a test with them (the school).
They will also take you round the course at lunchtime to show you what to do. (For a small fee).

Lol, I'm having deja vu.

But seriously, he doesn't. I was in his exact situation in October and did not go through a driving school.

I'm tryin' to lead this horse to water...

So you’ve got one of the fabled 10yr licences?
Only seen one.

I just watched a video of the driving tests ( ), and every car in the video was from a Drivers School. Can anyone please verify that you can take the driving test using your own car?
