In Pattaya, you will find that there are a number of driving schools in the city and some are certainly better than others. The standard of driving in Thailand, on the whole, can leave a lot to be desired but it appears that these driving schools are actively trying to raise standards. Of course, if you have a valid driving license from your home country and you are resident in Thailand you can get a Thai license relatively easily. However, if you don’t it is well worth getting some professional lessons before attempting to take the test.
Pattaya Driving School
Pattaya Driving School is located on South Pattaya Road and is one of the longer established driving schools in the city. They offer a range of different courses of lessons to suit your ability. Naturally, they will also help you to get through your theory test along with giving you the confidence to drive around the streets of Pattaya. The prices of all schools in the city are comparable and tend to be in the region of 6,500 Thai Baht to 8,000 Thai Baht depending on the package that you select.
Piyapat Driving School
Situated on Soi Siam Country Club, Piyapat Driving School is another of the well-established driving schools. The advantage with Piyapat is that they have English and German speakers which will undoubtedly make your experience far easier. Learning to drive in East Pattaya is probably a good idea for a complete novice as you will be able to avoid some of the heavy traffic in the city.

Pattaya Klang Driving School
As you would imagine, Pattaya Klang Driving School can be found on Central Pattaya Road. The school, of course, prides itself on giving new drivers the knowledge of being in control of a bike or car whilst also attempting to give you more experience and confidence to tackle the roads on your own. The pass rate is reportedly quite high and is a very good option for Thai partners as the levels of English spoken are not of the highest standard.
Treat Driving School
Treat Driving School can be found on Thepprasit Road in Jomtien and is perfect for those living in the area. Having been around for some time, the school has managed to forge an excellent reputation and is highly regarded. Like all the schools, the prices are all comparable so many decisions will come down to personal preference and how you get on with the instructor on an individual basis. Again they are reported to heavy an excellent pass rate.
