Motorcycle taxi drivers must register by Nov 30 or risk facing legal action, the Land Transport Department says.
Drivers need to register by that date to provide the service legally, department deputy chief Asdsathai Rattanadilok na Phuket said.
Drivers can check approved name lists and register at the department's offices, he said. Once they are registered they will obtain yellow licence plates.
Passengers should choose licensed drivers by looking for the yellow plates, he said.
The drivers must undergo training in traffic regulations and driving conduct, and must also pass criminal record checks.
