I'd certainly not travel too far without it. Especially to the wifes province as the local cops often want a copy and some tea money.

I've heard barang can get a 10 year licence or is only Chinese? Must say I've never met or heard anyone with one in all my years in KOW.
Personally I have never come across a problem with police in the provinces (sticks). Anyone else had this kind of shit paying tea monies?
But surely not worth the risk?
I never travel in Cambodia with my passport. Never had any issues in the wife's village, or anywhere else in Cambodia for that matter. I do keep a photos of the face page and current visa in my phone, but never once been asked for it.
In guesthouses and hotels I use my licence.

i know some people with the 10year, you have to do an actual test to get it though

once when i went to my friends village in Kampong Cham during the new year few years ago,
i had to go visit the village chief down the "police station" (it was just a concrete base in a field with a table and plastic chair lol)
he took some pictures of my passport explaining he only needed it in case anything was to happen to me,
no tea money needed though

Yes exactly, my DL renewal was caught up by LL for the past couple of months.

LL were telling me outright that they were processing WPs prior to Pchum Ben, and very keen to take my cash. Surely, they weren't being dishonest? ;)

Edit: Will somebody PLEASE fix these stupid icons? Wink code has been universal since forever, why is it different here?
LL provided me with a new driving license (after the old one was stolen) for a ridiculous rate, but they managed (they complained to me about the hoops they had to jump through to get it done), the license was dated 27-07-2017 so the past 'couple of months' must be taken literally - 2 months or less.
Yes, literally.

Ronny; where did ur incorrect post go :beer1:
sorry am right , not wrong :plus1:

The Department of Land Transport (DLT) said a new driving license is being produced that can be used in the ten ASEAN nations.

Drivers with the new license will be able to drive their cars in ASEAN member states, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.

and it works fine in the states an France when i was there.

there is NO international drives license only a IDP which is ONLY valid with your country license and no need at all as the thai license is in english and all an idp is,is a translation of your license.

Bring more cash. You can probably find a copy of your license in their system, but....

Plenty of threads covering this topic, but to answer your question, yes.
