Acoording Lonely Planet, it is possible to enter and lexit Burma via Mae Sai, Thailand only with a special permit. Is it true?
If yes , what has to be done in order to have this permition?

The current Lonely Planet Guide for Burma is hopelessly out-of-date - not least the border crossing information.
Some up-to-date information was posted recently on Travelfish:
Basically, there are four (I think) land borders with Thailand which are currently open for entry and exit without any special conditions - HOWEVER just remember, if you are crossing into Burma, you will need to have got your Burmese visa in advance in Bangkok (or wherever) - the 28 day tourist visas are NOT available at the border crossing (but can be used at the border).
Crossing back into Thailand is a breeze. I did it recently at Myawaddy / Mae Sot and depending on your passport you'll be given a 15 or 30 day tourist visa.

I really have desired to drive into Burma roads for experiencing the driving condition inside Burma by crossing Mandalay-Yangon then exit back to Thailand.
Is there any special documents required for this passage??? I would probably like to drive my ISUZU D-Max 3.0/ on Yangon- Mandalay via Naypitaw new Highway. Malaysian car.
