Driving into Thailand

My Thai wife and I often drive to Thailand in a car registered in Malaysia. Is she allowed to drive a car with foreign plates in Thailand? She has an international driving license that was issued in the US.

To drive legally in Thailand you must have either an international driving license or a Thai driving license. To bring your car into Thailand, you must first prove to Malaysian Immigration that you own the car. They will then give you a permit that will allow you to take the car out of Malaysia. This permit must be shown to the Thai immigration officer when you enter Thailand.
