Police Restricts Foreigners' Driving License.

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.

Police checkpoints outside nightclubs. Heavy fines for drunk driving. Night patrols. There are many things police could be doing to educate drivers.

....“From now on, foreign drivers must obtain both a license from their home country and an international driver’s license, and they will also need a Cambodian driver’s license,
Thought u need a long term extension AND a note from where ur living?
They expect tourists to do all this PLUS waste a day getting the license??
This is the point. My understanding is you can't get a cambo licence without a residency certificate and to get one those you need 1. long term visa extension and 2. lease agreement (in khmer). As advised by my landlord after visiting the local sangkat in PP yesterday. And need home licence otherwise you have to sit the test etc

So a tourist on a 1 month tourist visa staying in a hotel has zero chance even if he brought a home licence and IDP. But anyway, all this is really to do with Snook it seems..
