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.

I've never used my car licence here, it must be so frustrating driving a car here, even on a bike it's frustrating.
Dickheads are driving their SUVs on bikes here almost every week.

I came a cross a media article stating that Cambodia has now joined the Geneva Convention on Traffic Laws. I can't find it again now or another reference. If true, it means that possession of a valid foreign licence and carrying an international licence (which are not really licences, just a translation), allows a visitor to be recognized as licensed for up to 3 months visit. Anyone else seen that?

True.

The main paradigm shift for me was when riding my moto I was mostly fearful for my own safety. Getting smashed by the idiotic, errant freshy on his Dream or ground to a pulp under a ten-wheeled, deuce-and-a-half driven by some nose-picking, methed up, spittle-dribbling teenager.

Now, whilst car driving I'm mostly fearful of injuring others that are being idiotic and errant around me. I don't think I've hit 40 kph yet on the city roads.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Not just her, several agents are reporting that they can now start renewing and processing new DL's again.

Heard the price has more than doubled. Someone posted one agent wanted $150. I cant get any answers about now if you renew, (not a new licence app) you need a certificate of residence. Never had one in 10 years, never needed to.
