My Driving License

Was driving yesterday morning to work.. And suddenly... I thought of my driving license...

Me: Eh..... Thought my driving license is expiring this month... Better check it once I got back to office...

Take my wallet out and checked...

OMG! I've been driving illegally for the past 9 days!

My Driving License

Sad leh.. Brunei's driving license is nothing but a piece of paper hand written again somemore. Not like other countries one, got picture and some shiny stickers on them.

That's why when traffic police stop the car and want to check the drivers, they'll ask...

"Mana IC, Dre-ben Lesen?"

(Not too insult ALL the police in Brunei, but that's how some of them pronounced "Driving License")

Then they will match the face on the IC, and the numbers from the driving license.

I just went to the nearest Post Office and renew it. And..It only took me 5mins. Hehe.

No surprise... that's how my new driving license look like now...

Everything remains except the date.. (Boooooo)

B$10 - for a year
B$30 - for 3 years

Wish the Land Transport Department will renew their Driving License Format soon in the future lah. The stupid size of the "piece of paper" is hard to fit in to out wallet, and we're not allowed to laminate it lah... So I can be considered someone who's more careful with the license. I ever see my friend's one "buruk" (torn and crumbled) till dunno how to say liao...

why can't laminate? it makes sense as laminating protects the handwritten ink from running...

Nonnie King said...

Cos if there's any alteration, they do the amendments at the back of the piece of paper.. So we're not allowed to laminate it.

Only can buy those plastic cover nya.

Guruh Roy said...

its funny if you culd not laminate it, you could fake it later on.

Kenny Ng said...

I experienced driving illegally for a month before... hahaha. The funny thing is in Malaysia the police usually only check our driving license on motorcyclist. For car drivers they only check if u look suspicious or drunk.

Kelly Lim said...

Haha, nonnie king, so coincidence!!9 days ma...mine expired on 08-07-06 and i only remembered after 16 days!! u still can renew in post office? they told me i cant since expired already, so i have to go land transport instead! na beh..~~

Nonnie King said...

Ah Miss Kelly Lim, your "dreben lesen" is still new one.. you must renew it in land transport. Only after the "1 year probation" baru can go post office lah.

Somewhere within the paragraphs

you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short

while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in
logic and you might do nicely to fill in those breaks. In the event that you
actually can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly be fascinated.

I have to express some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this type

circumstance. Just after looking through the internet
and coming across

solutions that were not

pleasant, I believed my life was

done. Being alive without the presence of

answers to the problems you've sorted out all through your entire

site is a serious case, as well as the kind which might have negatively

affected my entire career if I had not noticed your site. Your good knowledge and kindness in touching all the

details was important. I am not sure what I

would have done if I hadn't come across such a

subject like this. I can also now relish my future.
Thank you very much for this impressive and

amazing help. I won't be reluctant to propose your web sites to anybody who

needs guide

on this issue.
