Lower driving age/no license required

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I'm riding a temporary little scooter thing at the moment, I'll see if I can get myself pulled over tomorrow and see what happens.
a number of my friends been pulled over the past couple of weeks, none have been fined for no license, or even asked for that matter
Jamie, if you don't mind elucidating a bit.... were they stopped at the 'std' road side police set up where they wave over lots of folks and were they actually in some sort of violation (helmet or otherwise) that caused 'fine'?

just curious

Cheers


Bertros :hattip:
one mate got pulled over downtown somewhere,
he got pulled over for passenger with no helmet + lights on, total fine = $5, never even asked to see his license
another got pulled randomly, at golden lions i think, he was still half cut from the night before and they threatened him with a breathaliser, he gave them $20 and was on his way, never asked about license
there have been a number of times they been pulled over, and its something ive been taking notice of and asking them, as i left my permit in Thailand, so been asking if they been asking for licenses and so far afaik none have bothered checking, i myself, dont normally get bothered by the police

That's my meme! Tried to get pulled over this aft, drove around all the checkpoints with my visor up making sure they saw my white mug, still couldn't get pulled over! Even flashed my lights at one cop standing in the road and he waved and got out of the way. What's this town coming to!?
Tomorrow I'm just gonna pull up by the side where they write up the fines sporting my fluoros and wife beater and shout 'I don't have a licence!!' I'll report back.
