TorRorOr - vehicle inspection

Post by tamada » January 11, 2021, 9:51 am

I know that it's 7-years when a vehicle (not a motorbike) requires annual inspection but is that based on the same rules as Thailand has for people where you are already 1 year old on your date of birth?

My pickup is model year (assembled) Q4 of 2014 but purchased and first road tax paid in Q1 of 2015. Am I due for my first inspection in March 2021 or next year?

That is a tricky one
Easy answer would be to take the vehicle to the Rego shops
I have used the one near Ban Leaum Wednesday evening markets
They do the paperwork and will test straight away if needed

Pretty certain the certificate has to be produced for the tax so I guess that’s annual from registering in Q1/15

However, I understand you’re able to get the certificate 90 day before needed so that could include the assembly in Q4/14

Is the insurance invalid here like the UK is there’s not a valid test certificate?

Back when it was 5 years I my plates for DMax were issued Nov 2002 it's 1st inspection was in Nov 2007. The local inspection agent would not issue me a certificate as I didn't have the Carry Boy listed in the blue book. 50 Baht and a day being jerked around in Nong Han to get that done.

Anyone want to buy an olde but barely run in DMax? :-"

My car, purchased new Dec. 2013, having received its registration and number plate in Jan. 2014, will have it's first inspection this month, seven years after being registered.

Thanks for that precise confirmation. Getting new tires for the sports lorry wasn't in my Q1 budget (or Q2, Q3 or Q4).

Again, spot-on. Many thanks.
