Hello everybody! A long time ago I bought a Nissan NV in Bkk, than sold it in Udon after 2 years. It was a fair deal...so my next car will be a cheap vehicle and I plan to buy again at the city of Angels. I am just passing my next holidays in Thailand so I will use the car for a few months only. The question: Is it possible to get a three month insurance? Or do I need to pay a full year in advance and than wait for the refund? I still have my yellow house registration book but I am not shure if I can register with a simple tourist visa? Regards Richard

Richard

There is an Insurance Thread to ask that question on, AA Ins brokers are very professional .

What has happened in the last 12 months or so,

Your car must be registered in the Province your are registered in for Immigration purposes. Your Yellow Book is your Immigration document, supported by your visa

I tried to register my new car ( August 2017 ) in BKK , but rejected and must be in Udon, where my Yellow Book is registered.

I think ??????? you can drive it to Udon, having got all the papers signed from the seller, then you go to the transport offices on the KK Road ( 15 km from Udon ) and transfer it over etc. it needs to go over the pit for inspection etc

Allow an early morning start , be there at 0730 to join the queue , as it gets busy

You can also do it at the transport office in town.
They do Inspections for change of ownership.
I changed a motorbike into my name which was registered in Bangkok & they gave me new plates & did the inspection.
Cars were also being done at the same time.

It is the original Transport office which was there before the one opened up on the Khon Kean road.
Between the fu**k up intersection with the flyover & tunnel & the traffic lights before the Christian School.


I always use that office to tax my cars & motorbike as it only ever takes 10 mins to complete everything .
The staff there are very good & efficiant.

cant get a lot more "ON TOPIC" than Pal52's last post ........ the carnage that WAS a road at the ex Tesco traffic lights.

Now the fr*ggin idiots have started to dig up the left side lane/hard shoulder, at EXACTLY the same point that they have the outside lane blocked off :evil:

Given the average Thai drivers patience threshold, if that's not recipe for carnage I don't know what is [-X

The WHO report had Libya as #1 and Thailand #2. I wonder where this puts India?

That's the problem....there is no logic in the Thai mind as we know it. This guy is like so many thousands of others who daily make the "Buddha turn" without so much as even a glance at what may be coming down the road towards them. I think it has to be a defective gene in the Thai DNA. That's the only logical explanation as we know it!

Sorry, your explanation is not logical, it is racist.

That video clip is just so typical and it can be motorbikes, cars, bicycles, anything and from schoolkids to the aged. Or they'll actually take a look, having already turned! It's happened three or four occasions to me at the Phen traffic lights and having been unable to restrain myself from sounding off, I get the I don't understand why the farang's going crazy face. :roll:

Different way of thinking.I see near misses regular.Where a farang will shout and rave , they just shrug and go on their way.
It's excepted to go wrong on the roads here. But will always be farangs fault! [-X
