Last I checked, you needed three uninterrupted years on the same visa to begin applying for permanent residence. Also, you will be given a test of Thai. For this, you should prepare for their Thai sixth grade exam for foreigners.

You can circumvent all these rules legally if you enter Thailand with 2M Baht (about US$60K) in your pocket, or have a pension of about a thousand a month. Thais like foreign money. On those terms, they'll let you stay as long as you want.
