1. You do not have any driver's license - you have been pulled over by a policeman. What are your actions in this case:А) Illegal way is to pay a bribe.
For driving without driver's license, the official fine ranges from 5,000 baht or 3 months in jail. Police can demand up to 10,000 baht. But you can usually settle for 2,000 baht or less and get away with it. If you take such risks, do not keep a lot of money in your wallet, prepare in advance the amount you would like to give in this case. Be extremely polite, do not get into arguments and do not raise your voice. After all, you have broken the rules, and it is in your interest to agree.
Remember! By giving a bribe, you are promoting corruption! There are also ways to solve this problem legally.B) Legal - take a receipt for an official fine.
The police have the right to take away the bike or its documents. Try to keep the documents, as this is more convenient. Find out where you can pick up your bike or documents after you have paid the fine. Most likely, they will not give your bike back to you because you still do not have a license. Your bike lessor can often help you with that. Contact him/her and discuss together what are your options. They might be able to offer you a temporary replacement scooter in this case.
