There are thousands of accidents every year on phuket which mostly involve motorbikes and the death toll is very high:

(1) Wear a helmet - it's the law, or face a fine.  (2) You need a driving licence; the rental companies won't  ask for it, but the police will if you're stopped. (3) There is NO insurance coverage. If you or the bike are  damaged you will have to pay for everything. (4) Make sure the owner is aware of all the existing damage to the bike before you start riding it.
