Drivers Licence required for ATV Tours?

Hi

Do the ATV tours require a drivers licence to be able to drive? or is there just a age limit?

Thanks

Yes, you need a driver's license...they come in 500 Baht and 1000 Baht denominations ;-)

Hi Lost,

Do i actually need an Australian drivers licence? From what I know you are able to ride ATV's in Australia without a licence as long as you arent driving on a road etc then it needs to be registered and requires a drivers licence.

The one you are referring to for 500/1000 do they actually ask to see a current drivers licence or are you just basically paying for the right to ride them in thailand? Can I just show my passport and thats it?

Spud, we have been doing atv tours with atvphuket for many many years, you do not need a drivers license to ride them, like pokip said there is age restrictions etc, download their fact sheet it gives the ages for children riding the smaller bikes & different ages for the bigger bikes etc.

Great! thanks Cathy :)

I thought it would seem odd if you needed one especially if kids/older teens are driving them

Cathy...since we're on the topic of ATV'ing, do you know if you can go 2 adults on one ATV? I don't know how to drive one (and don't want to learn) I do enjoy going on the back of hubby's.

Thanx

We leave next week and l am trying to work out the main sightseeing things we would like to do before we get there so not waisting time thinking about it all once we get there...Cheers Belinda
