 Basically, just a passport and a valid residency certificate, which we can help arrange for you at our office if you have a TM-30 from immigration.

The basic government requirements to be road legal is to have the mandatory government insurance called P.R.B. that only covers basic medical for the third party. You also need this policy to renew your yearly road tax.  Cars over 7 years old and motorbikes over 5 years old also have to have a smog and safety inspection done in order to be able to renew your tax.  See our vehicle title services page.

 

Yearly registration revolves around the date the car was originally registered new.  So when a car changes owners the date doesn’t change. You can only renew the yearly road tax /registration 90 days before it expires. When you buy a car from us the road tax will be valid for a minimum 3 months or more (up to 1 year and 3 months).

 

We highly recommend you purchase an additional insurance policy that will cover collision property damages and additional medical coverage.  Insurance in Thailand is usually sold for an unnamed driver so the good news is that anyone can drive your car and be covered.  See more details about collision insurance policies types.
