I was woken about 5am by the speakers from the local Mosque and wasnt too upset as I wanted an early start.
I was packed had my breakfast and was waiting outside the bank for when it opened, travellers cheques changed, Malaysian currency purchased and I was off

I stopped to pay the girl for my insurance and to retrieve my phone then on to Thai immigration, the insurance cost 800 Baht for the month not 1000 that I was quoted yesterday
At the border and absolutely nobody waiting, this was totally at odds with the almighty queue there yesterday.
I quickly exited Thailand and rode through to the Malaysian Immigration expecting to be through in record time.
At the Malaysian side I was told I needed my insurance, Thai driving licence and two green book pages photocopied.
To get this I had to go back through into Thailand to where I bought the insurance but nobody seemed to care about me going to and fro a couple of times.
With this I went back and then it was decided I needed the green book translated into English.
The Malaysians seemed to think the insurance girl could do this as did the Thai officials, sadly she cannot.
The Immigration officials on both sides bent over backwards to help me by making phone calls but in the end it was apparent I had to go back to Satun to get it done at the Land Transport Office

So anyone crossing over at the border crossing here do yourself a favour and get one of these from the office at N06.65339 E100.08745, they only cost 25 Baht and save you a lot of hassle.
I hear people say they have just crossed at Sadao with nothing asked for, I have only ever crossed over into Malaysia here and this is the procedure.
My next problem will be that my insurance is only for 30 days so I will only get an ICP for 30 days, when I renew the insurance I can renew the ICP but will I have to get another one of these forms again
